How to Finish Your Book Despite the Distractions

This is something I am dealing with right now, and I know all of my fellow writers can relate. Writing a book is hard enough when you don’t have any distractions. But, how are you supposed to write when you’ve got monkeys, oh, I mean children, climbing the walls around you?

Here are five tips to help you overcome quarantine distractions and get your book written:

#1 As much as you are enjoying the extra sleep, set your alarm for a regular time each morning. Let your children sleep in while you work on your book.

#2 Schedule time each day where you can barricade yourself in your room and write for an hour. It may be a struggle at first, but if you keep up with it the children will learn the routine.

#3 Give yourself some tough love. Create a daily discipline and make yourself stick to it. Don’t give yourself an excuse to back out or put off your writing time.

#4 Find yourself an accountability partner. This can be a friend that will keep you in check, it can be a fellow writer, or even an author coach. The important thing is to find someone who will keep you on your toes.

#5 Set a deadline. While it’s easy to procrastinate, if you set yourself a hard deadline you will find you’ll reach your goals.
