Most of the time when I'm writing I cannot stay focused for some reason. The smallest thing can catch my attention and cause me to get off track with my writing. I like to listen to music when I'm writing because I think it'll help me stay focused a little bit, but I tend to start getting more into the music then my writing. I've tried writing in a closed and quiet place with no distractions around me but then I get bored and can't write. If I'm writing a paper on my laptop I'll start to open up other tabs with YouTube, Twitter, or shopping sites. So I ask myself, how can I work on staying focused? . It takes entirely to long for me to write when I'm not focused.
Because of my lack of focus I feel like it affects my grade because I can't put my all into my writing. I know when your given a topic you can relate to then it's easier for you to stay focused and just write away, but what about the topics that mean nothing to you? How do I focus then? Also when I'm writing and I feel like I can't write anymore because I'm out of stuff to say I'll just get distracted and get up and do something else. I need help with staying focused! :(
