Random writing for 9/15/2016

The last night in a hotel this week…it’s been a long week and I’m ready to head home for a couple days to recharge before I’m back on Sunday.

Tonight I flipped through the “writing prompts” book again and found other good one – one that I’m actually gonna share. 🙂

What is a sure-fire way to distract you from the task at hand?

Listening to the wrong music – I’ll pick up on the lyrics and that will lead me down a deep, dark rabbit hole of finding and reading the lyrics, then to YouTube to watch the video which will lead to watching movie clips and other videos. That will almost always lead me to Facebook to post some of the videos. It’s happened time and time again.

By the way, here’s a picture of what I actually wrote and my awful handwriting (the result of way too many years of typing for a living).

    1. Patrick – 9 times out of 10, I start my day out with a playlist on Spotify named “Indie Folk for Focus” or one called “Productive Morning”. Both are 100% instrumental and really do a good job of giving me the music I need to work without the distraction of lyrics. It’s that 1 time out of 10 where I think, “Ooohh…I’ll start the day with the Chili Peppers” that things go off the rails. 🙂
