Writing online is fun, but sometimes the writer can be distracted, and the outcome might not have been as good as if the writer had not been disturbed. For some the distractions can be a huge problem, others do not care, and keep writing though they receive messages on Facebook, receive emails on Outlook, or receives text messages on their mobile phones. The ones that keep writing has adapted to the situation, and keeps focused. The other writers has to learn that if they are really distracted while they are on Facebook, or whatever site they are on, they should simply close the site that distracts them.
However, a writer writes best if one is adapted to the situation of writing in stress, and in places with loud sounds. They can suddenly go down to the local coffeshop or cafe and write without being distracted by music and conversations in the background. They can write everywhere, and are not just restricted to write in their homes. Imagine taking the subway, writing an article during the 15 minutes time of waiting until you reach your stop. It would give you a much greater exposure, giving you a larger profit. Every single spare moment of the day can be used to write, if that is what the writer wants to do, also giving you time to practice your writing more.
One of the solutions to avoid online distractions while working is, if the writer is distracted by being online, to turn off the internet, or closing down the windows of the browser that distracts the writer. The other solution would be to adapt the situation of stress, and keep on writing, practicing to write in distracting situations. Writing good articles can also be done in loud and distracting places, it is about adapting. Lots of writers write whereever they are, articles that are just as good as the ones they have written in their homes. It is very rewarding adapting to the situation of stress and distracting. Especially if a writer wants to use his/her time optimal.
Close the windows of your browser if they distract you, or adapt to them. Turn the sound on your computer down, and just focus on the writing. If a writer stays focused on his/her article all the time of the writing, and reads it through carefully after it has been written, it will likely turn out to be a great article.
