Writer’s Concentration Checklist

Jun 30, 2014 | Better Writing

Everybody knows that you will write better if you concentrate on your work. But in today’s world, many of us seem to be losing the battle with interruptions.

My way of solving this problem is to create a Concentration Checklist that I run through before I start to write. Here it is.

People shooed away.
Email alerts off.
Phone off.
Writing tools ready.
Work prepared.
Music on.
Door closed.

Now the writing can begin.
