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.
