Happy Monday. Are you feeling inspired? I am but at the same time I’m feeling a little unfocused. That will come as no surprise to those who know me.
Yep, that’s me alright! Staying on track while writing is one of my biggest hurdles. One thing that helps me is music. I have a writing playlist on my phone that I use to keep my mind from wandering too far. It works even better if I have earphones on. I also put my phone on airplane mode because I will check any little beep it makes and before I know it I will have played five games of Candy Crush, watched twenty funny cat videos, and pinned fifty tips on homesteading that I will never use. It’s just so easy to get distracted because writing is hard and distractions are welcomed breaks.
Another thing I find helpful is writing with pen and paper instead of typing on my computer. The most interesting thing about a notebook are the words you’ve written. It’s highly unlikely that a text will pop up on your college ruled five subject mead. However, if one does, I certainly would drop everything to read and answer it!
Now here’s my writing prompt for this week. I found it on Pintrest and thought it would be fun.
I would love to read these speeches so please put them in the comments. XOXO Jakki
