Prevent and deal with interruptions.

Your telephone or computer can be one great big distraction that can keep you from focusing on doing the writing that needs to be done. Ignoring a ringing phone or chiming text message or that inbox full of e-mails is almost impossible. So turn off the ringer, close the e-mail program, and quit your browser if you cannot focus when you should be writing.

If you’ve become addicted to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, shut them down so that you’re blissfully unaware of the constant stream of distractions and can continue your writing.
