Sometimes when writing, you look away from your computer or paper for a second only to get distracted by something else? Yes, that happens a lot. (at least with me) So, I thought I’d tell you five things that sometimes distract me from writing. I got this idea from a fellow writer at the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. There are lots of clever writing prompts, ideas, and encouragements to be found there so you should check it out!
- My Cat
My cat, Niki, usually hangs out in a spare computer chair in my room. It happens like this, I look over and want to pet her and then suddenly, about 30 minutes have passed without me noticing.
- My Second Monitor
I usually have Discord or YouTube pulled up on my second monitor so that sometimes distracts me. Either I get involved in a conversation, or I see a video on YouTube I really want to watch.
- My iPad
I almost always have my iPad on my desk in case I get a notification or something like that. That in turn, also sometimes distracts me.
- My Other Cat
My other cat, Niko, in our house sometimes comes in my room. Sometimes to get petted, and sometimes just to steal Niki’s chair sneakily.
- My Family
This is by far the biggest thing, my family usually distracts me but also, sometimes they give me ideas. Sometimes one of them runs the blender to make a shake, or they have me do something. Whatever the case, they’re always there to help me and distract me alike.
