Do you also get distracted while writing?


#1

When you’re trying to write the script for your story, do you just get distracted and like go to the forums and reply to people rather than finishing your script.
I noticed that I do this a lot and I may or may not be doing that right now.
but i just wanna know if you do this too


#2

I do this all the time. I also get distracted by YouTube as well since I use it for background noise sometimes.


#3

Yes! Although, I try making it my priority to help others before my story!


#4

meeee tooo doing that right now


#5

all. the. time.


#6

Me thinking I can multitask tried reading a episode and writing one at the same time pshhh.


#7

Yeah… sometimes I write whilst my sisters watch their trashy American TV in the same room. I always think “meadow, there’s no way you can get distracted by THAT garbage” but I always do and I can’t seem to focus whenever it’s on… CONSPIRACIES :hushed::joy:


#8

Yes, I get distracted within the first 5-10 minutes of writing XD


#9

I literally should be writing rn… but here I am.
Sometimes I think I should’ve never joined the forums, because now it’s my go-to place for when I “need a break” from my script lmao, all 607 lines of it (which is barely anything for me). Before it was Youtube and Amazon (still is), now it’s this blasted place. :black_heart:

Fun fact: I was SO distracted, that this past weekend, I actually debated whether or not to create a thread for people to “yell” at me to get my act together and just write. I guess I thought it would motivate me?
If that’s not pathetic, idk what is :woman_shrugging:

I made this topic to have a reason to “take a break.” I didn’t even debate on whether or not to make this top, but GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER- another thing I do to take a break is give people advice on writing stories


#11

Definitely! It’s absolutely human to get distracted and procrastinate. Completely understandable. Sometimes I have to turn on “Do Not Disturb” on my phone just to make sure I write at least 100 lines for a chapter :sweat_smile:


#12

I’m so bad that I would probably procrastinate to turn on do not disturb


#13

All the time.
Somedays it’s different and i can write like, 400-700 lines in one sitting. Somedays I can write like 1000 lines in one sitting (but with breaks) . Once I wrote 1000 lines no breaks. Other days I can barley write 50 before getting-distracted. It depends.
When I get bored of episode, I play the sims 2.


#14

So so so easily distracted omg. I find that ideas for my story pop up before I sleep and when I wake up lol but yeah I procrastinate madly


#15

Omg yes hahaha - it just sucks you in


#16

The struggle is real. I always get distracted by Instagram and then on people’s IG story’s, they’re reading this story which looks really good so I go to find it and start reading it but then I try to write at the same time. Then I give up on writing and just read Episode instead. I also procrastinate too much. :joy::joy:


#17

Oh my gosh I forgot about instagram, it’s a completely different distraction. I go on there and forget what I was trying to do


#18

Same here lol. :raised_hands:t3:


#19

right after I typed that I went down an instagram rabbit hole


#20

:joy:
