  2. Hi Cori,

    This is an awesome post. I love the aspect you advised that we should stay away from the internet. To be more specific with the way it affects me, I will be put it this way, “Stay away from social media.” In all honesty, social media steals a bunch of my writing time.

    I strongly believe reducing the amount of time I spend on social media daily can go a long in boosting my writing productivity.

    You spoke to me on this, and I’m gonna take action speedily.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Emenike,

      I’m glad you found this post helpful! Yes, social media certainly can take up a lot of our time. I get caught up in it too. 🙂

      Thanks for reading this post and for your comment. Have a great week!

  3. Hello Cori,
    Though i am also a blogger, but writing still seems to be the hardest part for me. The tips you mentioned are very useful to so many people who are struggling with the writing part. For me gadgets are the main culprit. The moment i sit down to write, i start getting tons of notifications and all. People starts tagging me, starts commenting on my blog and flood of appreciations starts to hit me. And, irony is that happens the very moment i sit down to write and ultimately i fall prey to all those temptations. Thanks for this wonderful piece of advice, can’t wait to apply all these. Let’s see how it goes for me.

  4. Hi Cori,

    You are right about all that you mentioned 🙂

    These are some great ways to increase our productivity. I would include a standing desk in this list as well as that makes me more focused in your work, so you don’t get too lazy while sitting all the time! However, it takes a while to get used to it though – my better half uses it, so I know how it works.

    I read somewhere that you can even try to darken your screen to zero – no brightness at all and just write! Edit it all later – though still need to try that one. Yes, writing on notepad works and editing later, in case you wish to write really fast.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

  5. Hi Cori,
    I have to say that #10 is something I used to struggle with but not anymore. Being realistic is something I had to learn. I expected more of myself but now I have learned to be realistic! I’ve successfully learned to say no lol.

    Also, I do follow #5. I have my special place where even the dogs barking I an’t hear he he he. I do what I set out to with no phone, no online service…just writing on my desktop. It works like a charm and gets the work done quickly.

  6. Hi Cori,
    I really dig #1 and #2. I am a bear for writing rituals, both in space and time 😉 When I wrote and self-published 1 eBook daily for 3 months in a row I found a quiet spot on the villa grounds in Jimbaran and wrote an eBook starting at 9 AM every day. Finished up writing by 11 AM most days, sometimes noon. Then proof reading, submitting and by 3 or 4 PM I had another eBook on Amazon. Follow that writing schedule in your sacred writing spot. Miracles will happen.
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  7. Hi Cori,

    These are great tips for anyone who wants to improve their writing productivity. I always use #9 when I am writing.

    I write all my blog posts on my localhost server, this allows me to just write content and not worry about accidentally hitting publish on my live blog. (I’ve done that before)

    Once I am done writing my content, I’ll then transfer it to my live blog. It’s a little bit more work, but that system works for me.

    I love the carrot and stick concept. I may have to try that as I’ve kind of slacked on my writing this week. Thank goodness I’ve built up a nice arsenal of blog posts for those lazy Summer days.

    Thanks for sharing these tips with us, have a great day 🙂

    Susan
