If you’re unfocused, it will show in your novel ~ through plot holes, inconsistencies, and lackluster writing.
Writing is my passion, but I also understand it is hard work. Writing a novel is a mix of weee sliding down the water slide fun moments 😃 and omg editing this chapter for the umpteenth time moments 😣 To deal with the hard work of writing a novel, focus is needed.
Here are 2 tools that I use that will help you get your focus back for those 😣😣😣 parts of writing:
With Buffer you can schedule your social media posts. Schedule and forget it ~ and go work on your novel!
I’ve been using Buffer for quite some time with very satisfying results. I schedule posts and only log into social media every few days to reply to my followers. It’s super user-friendly and it will give you full control of your social media ~ instead of it controlling you!

I consider myself a person of willpower, but boy oh boy, websites like Reddit and Twitter and YouTube can be so much fun 😂 “I’ll just check it real quick,” I say, only to realize three hours have gone by.
BlockSite is the furrowed-brow’d friend that tells you “No. We’ve got work to do.”
Adding and removing websites is super simple, and it even comes in app form to block apps on your phone. I block sites/apps for my writing hours. Before, all these fun sites were like gnats fighting for my attention. Now, they can wait.

I hope these two tools help you dive deeper into your novel ~ If you have any tips or tools, let us know in the comments!
