from the desk of bingley no. 2

Blogger's Note: While I make an effort to generate some serious progress on Book 3, the wonderful Bingley Chapman has agreed to oversee Change the Word. All opinions expressed in these posts are his and his alone. (Except when they're mine, but being portrayed as his.)


Maybe the little woman would find more time and energy to write if she spent a little less of it taking selfies. 

I'll admit, there is nothing that distracts me quite so well as a laser pointer or plastic bag. Once I get one of those in sight, not even my great desire to nap will keep me away from attacking those things.

Here's a question for you readers and writers out there: What do you find most distracting when you're trying to stay focused on a book or project?

(In other news: Please don't tell my mom I referred to her as "the little woman." She gets kind of... annoyed about things like that.)

  1. Social media is my biggest distraction on the nights when I sit down to write. In fact it really screwed up some of my plans to write this weekend.

    1. My mom sure loves her social media! She says it's hard to disengage once she's engaged. Whatever that means! =^.^=

  2. Social media, kids, husband, day job, life, hunger, thirst, cobwebs, memes, Buzzfeed quizzes, "inspiration" pictures... Yeah. I get distracted, too, Bing. And I'm totally telling her you called her "the little woman." We have to nip that in the bud.

  3. Like Grace and Brea said, social media is one of my biggest distractions! I use a timer to keep me focused, and write for 35 minutes, take a short break, then get back to work.

    1. That's a great idea. Maybe I should have my mom try that! =^.^=
