Last fall, I removed a big distraction from my life. If you ever feel like your significant other is a distraction or a time waster, it’s probably time to re-examine that relationship.
And then there is the La Brea Tar Pit of all distractions called Facebook. I’ve never tried blocker apps but I can appreciate how much wasted time they might save. This morning I turned off my wifi until I’d finished drawing comics. That’s a nice accomplishment, but I’ve found that my own self discipline is not consistent or reliable. I need feedback and time limits and rewards to keep up positive momentum. Sometimes it’s as simple as setting a kitchen timer and writing for twenty minutes solid.
