Writing in the Age of Distraction

I've had this bookmarked since January 2009, but have only just got round to reading it in full: Cory Doctorow's tips for defeating distraction in order to write.

I tend to observe most of them anyway (in the context of photo processing as much as in writing), particularly the one about avoiding word processing packages – I don't even have one on my PC, instead writing everything in my html editor (Homesite is non-WYSIWYG), but the suggestion to stop mid-sentence is an interesting one, and it's always good to be consciously reminded of the others.
