Turn off your Wi-Fi
When you sit down to write, turn off your Internet connection – whether on your phone, your computer, or your tablet. That way, as you are writing, you won’t be tempted to pause for a few minutes…which turns into a few half-hours…to browse the internet or catch up on what your friends have been up to on social media. You also won’t be able to check emails, respond to messages, or read the news, which may put you into a funk that will make you want to ditch your writing goals for the day.
Turning off your Wi-Fi – or even shutting off your non-writing devices, like phones and tablets – will help you stay productive during the time you have designated as your writing period for the day.
