Lately, I've been easily distracted by things ... my new lens, new software, email. I notice it more in my writing, after all I only have a few hours a day to get any writing done.
One of the blogs I follow is Photofocus. Scott Bourne and his contributors offer great tips on photography which I try to incorporate into my photography work-flow. Lately, they've posted tips that I find applicable to writing as well. One such post is about focusing on work by reducing the distractions around your workspace, which he learned by way of racing cars.
Taking this to heart (particularly since it was one of my goals to get certain things done), I've logged out of my RSS reader on my writing computer. No more checking the latest blog posts that come in the last 30 minutes. And doing that one thing has made a difference already.
Next up ... to stop logging into Facebook on my writing computer and only access it via the home computer and iPhone. Wish me luck.
