Ever feel like you’ve worked all day but didn’t get anything worthwhile done? Are you constantly busy but fewer words make it onto the page? Feel exhausted and scattered by the end of the day? You’re not alone. This is the age of distraction. But as writers, many of those distractions (social media, chatting with readers, book research) are part of the job, so moving to an off-the-grid cabin probably isn’t an option.

However, with so many things competing for our attention and time, when are we supposed to do that thing we do—write? This course will show you how you can take back your focus, retrain your distracted brain, and reclaim your writing time, while still balancing the other things that need to get done.

What We’ll Cover:

  • How to retrain your brain to focus
  • How to tackle the distractions, the social media beast, and your phone
  • How to take back your writing/creative time
  • How to set up a personalized schedule for success
  • How to work with your personality to increase your productivity
  • How to spend more time doing meaningful work instead of just being busy
