Note From Rochelle
I am off this week—but never fear, I will be back in the office next week.
I don’t know about you, but I am having trouble focusing. So, I decided to create a newsletter series on the topic of how to overcome distractions and focus on writing.
If you need more help than a tip, think about joining Writing Accountability Group. We will meet five times over the course of ten weeks—to hold each other accountable. I will be teaching you tools for setting and achieving goals, overcoming procrastination, and getting work done. I’m opening up just six spots for this group, so sign up soon. https://writenowcoach.com/writing-accountability-group/

How to Focus:
Discover and preserve your genius time
Genius time is that part of the day when you’re a writing wizard. That doesn’t mean you cannot write at other times of day, but you might not be as fast or as focused. As a morning writer, I don’t want to waste my mornings with email, social media, or meetings. I need to use those precious hours to write. But your genius time might be in the afternoon or just before bed or while you’re eating lunch. Your job is to protect and nurture your genius time no matter what happens.
Try this: Map your energy. Take a look at your most productive days. Map when you have performed like a writing genius but also consider when you’re a genius at idea development, researching, pitching, and networking as well as social, intellectual, creative, and physical tasks. Set aside time to write during your genius time.
