The clock is ticking…
Tick tock…tick tock…
How many words did you write today? Why haven’t you finish that book yet?
We all torment ourselves with these phrases and then blame our lack of productivity on…
Twitter…Facebook…Instagram…kids…family…the Internet…not enough coffee.
It’s all about focus.
And finding that beautiful space in our minds where we can run free and create and write and write and write.
It can be as elusive as a butterfly.
But well worth going after, no matter what gets in our way.
According to experts, interruptions can put a big damper on our concentration and it can take about ten minutes to get the writing flowing again.
So the next time an email pops into your Inbox, or the phone rings, or someone yells, “Hey, Mom, are you busy?” know that it’s not your fault if it takes a few minutes to get back into the moment.
Then let the butterfly in your mind run free…
You can be sure I had a lot of interruptions putting this together, but I finished it!
