Tip: Turn off the internet. And games. And put away any other distractions. One game can lead to an hour of missed writing time. Looking for that one piece of research on the internet can cause you to lose hours in “oh, look at that” distractions.

Teaser: Go to your nearest public library and browse the stacks. Check out areas you don’t normally go. What can you find that’s new and different for you?
