Writing Productivity Secret

The secret is:

Turn the internet off.

I know it isn’t a secret, but the title sounded cool.

This morning I happened to do some writing outside of the range of my wireless.  I hadn’t realized how many times during my writing sessions I would interrupt myself to check email or look at something online.

There are times you have to do research online, but this was not what I was doing.  I had slipped into the habit of writing a little and then doing something online.  I wasn’t even aware of how much I did it.

My word count doubled.

Imagine that.  🙂

I’m moving out of range or unplugging it tomorrow as well.
