Being Distracted While Writing

Distractions when writing is one of the greatest challenges for a new or struggling author. Pretty colors. Cleaning the oven. Organizing your closets. The strangest distractions can seem important when ideas aren’t flowing. Or perhaps the more visible success of fellow writers has you in a bit of a funk.

Snap out of it!


Regain your focus. Remember what your purpose is. Revisit the reason you decided to sit at the keyboard in the first place.

Take a break if you need it. Read this post if you’d like. But get back to work. You’ll be glad that you did.

And now I need to get back to work, too. <smile>

PA-ACFW Conference

PA-ACFWHey friends! I’m speaking in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on November 5th for the 2nd Annual Keystone Christian Fiction Writers’ Conference! If you’re in the area, come and spend the day with us. It’s going to be fun, informative and hopefully inspiring. I would love to have you stop by my class and share some time with me there. Agents from Hartline Agency will be there. Jeanette Windle is the Keynote and other published authors will be there to share their knowledge and support.

You can find more information at the Pennsylvania ACFW website.

Hope to see you there!
