Things that Hold us Back
I’m too tired to concentrate. I’m not good enough. I’ll just eat this one chocolate first. The house needs cleaning. I need another snack. I have to get ahead with my blog posts. I just want to switch off for a while. I’m not feeling well. I’m too hot. I’m too cold. The house is too noisy. The neighbours are too noisy. My brain is too noisy.
I could go on, but I’m guessing you get the picture.
Distractions will happen when we write. They aren’t insurmountable. We just have to be careful they don’t turn into excuses to avoid writing.
Get over it, decide to write, even if it’s a few words and don’t let anything hold you back.
What are some of your worst distractions? What are some of your lamest excuses?
