I have a hard time sitting still and on track. I get easily derailed by many things, such as social media, news, a wandering mind, worries, etc.
Consequently, I’ve tailored my writing routine around this restlessness.
I live by my timers, writing in chunks until time is up. Then I take a few breaks. I used these time periods to quell any distractions.
I give myself 30 minutes to write.
I follow the chunking method. This method makes reading and understanding faster and easier.
I do my best to maintain this routine since it improves my focus and concentration.
It also helps me convey information more efficiently. I don’t get burned out. And there is no chance for social media to derail me.
I also apply this method when writing code; e.g. writing small chunks of functionality in small chunks of time.
