This week Dr Tanya of Salted Caramel has supplied this quote which appears to be unattributed. I’d hazard a guess it was written by someone born after the year 2000.
No question that the internet is a major distraction. I mean anything can be a distraction if you are having a hard time coming up with something to write about. “I’ll just make a coffee first.”, playing with the dog, checking your phone messages (not me ever). However, the internet is the biggest rabbit hole of all. It is easy to get involved in checking your email and social media or, for me, reading news stories on the internet or browsing eBay.
Maybe it would be more accurate to say that being a good writer is 3% talent and 97% staying focussed.
