IWSG: Distractions

It's the first Wednesday of the month and time for the Insecure Writers support group, hosted by the amazing Alex J. Cavanaugh!

Happy Independence Day tomorrow for those of you who celebrate :)

Onto the post!

Today is not so much about being insecure as it is about being distracted. Here's a prime example: Just now, when I wrote the first sentence in this paragraph I decided it was urgent to eat a graham cracker. So I got up from my chair, opened a new package of crackers, noticed the top one was broken had to open the package more so that I could get out all the pieces. Then I realized the irony of what I was doing and sat back down to write this post.

Yeah, I think I would be a little more productive if I just kept my hands on the keyboard and stopped worrying about graham crackers that will still be there in ten minutes when I finish writing.

If only graham crackers were the worst of my problems though. Oh no, Facebook and YouTube are HUGE distractions in my life. Some days I go to YouTube with the intent to look up a song or something and end up spending a whole heck of a lot of time watching the videos that YouTube says I might like. And you know what? I do like them, that's why I didn't leave. That's also why I forgot I went there.

Basically, what it boils down to is, I would've written like 5 books already this year if I wasn't so.... Oh man, does that say Disney and Boy Band? I must watch.

What distracts you?
