One of the biggest problems I have been having with writing at the moment is trying to concentrate. There are so many other things to do, especially if the internet is just a click away. The best site for distracting me is That Guy with the Glasses. I can spend hours there.

But going back to concentrating on writing. I have found something that helps with internet related distractions. It is called Freedom. It turns off your internet for a length of time that you specify. This means that you cannot do anything on the internet until that time is up, unless you restart your computer, or borrow someone else’s computer. The point being that it would be too much trouble to do those things.

This program has helped me, because mentally I know that the internet is turned off and I don’t even try to click the button. However, it has not helped with all distractions. I found out that you can change the backgrounds and tiles in mah-jong on my computer. I seem to win more games with the change in tiles.

With Freedom, it is easy to find, all you have to do is type it into a search engine. You can download the trial version, which gives you five uses before you have to buy. When you do go to buy it the cost is only tens dollars. The website will tell you that many people believe that to be money well spent. I have not invested any money into yet, but it seems to be a good program for those of us who have internet related concentration problems.
