Writing Inspiration: Go off the grid

Among the biggest distractions are social media and the Internet. When unable to come up with the next line, the urge is strong to answer the latest email or to troll through our friends’ posts. During the time you’ve set aside to write, turn off your cell phone and close all browser windows. By doing so, do you find you’re a more productive writer?


My name is Rob Bignell. I’m an affordable, professional editor who runs Inventing Reality Editing Service, which meets the manuscript needs of writers both new and published. I also offer a variety of self-publishing services. During the past decade, I’ve helped more than 300 novelists and nonfiction authors obtain their publishing dreams at reasonable prices. I’m also the author of the 7 Minutes a Day… writing guidebooks, four nonfiction hiking guidebook series, and the literary novel Windmill. Several of my short stories in the literary and science fiction genres also have been published.
