How I write distraction-free

Here’s a trick that helps me write with fewer distractions. ✍️

Too often, I overthink what I’m writing, as I’m writing it.

Instead of simply getting my ideas down, I start obsessing over specific word choices, grammar, etc.

So to fix that, I now open a Google Doc and set my Text Color to white.

I then go to tools, select Word Counter, and check the box to "display word count while typing"

And voila, a way for me to write freely without being distracted by WHAT I’m writing.

The word counter is handy for peace of mind, but also when I'm writing something like a blog post and want to keep tabs on my copy length.

I hope this comes in handy ✌️
