Don’t Lose Focus

Hey y’all! It’s Mandy here. I just read a fantastic article called “How to Concentrate on Writing.”

Great title, eh? 🙂 Seriously… This article has some great tips on how to focus when we need to. One thing I’ve fought is the discipline of focus. Especially when I use my computer to facilitate my creative process. My computer is also my #1 source of distraction (can I get an amen?!)…

man, this place has been dead recently…what happened to the weekly check-in/report? I’ve posted several photo series on my blog AND, I wrote out music for one new worship choir song in the month of April!

Plus, I’m doing a weekly photo challenge that anyone is welcome to join…check out this week’s challenge (!

Excellent article. Thanks for the input. I am a worship leader at one of my church’s two campuses, and I get caught not writing enough–mostly because of my taskload and computer, ha ha. Thanks for the resource Mandy!

Thanks so much! I need to write, I need to write! I just have to get started – my boss, my pastor, everyone is asking me too! It’s hard to leave the everyday and push into a new area…Thanks!
