    How can I keep focused and motivated when writng my book?

    I am a big procrastinator. How can I make myself concentrate?
    This is also valid for studying but its even worse when I am trying to write.

    I wish I knew, I write one chapter then stop every time

    Google the 'Pomodoro method' - it's pretty useful for getting through difficult tasks!

    Haha welcome the world of being a writer. Procrastination is the writer's curse.

    Why writers are the worst procrastinators.

    There are plenty of downloadable programmes which can temporarily block distracting websites whilst you're busy writing. Myself I'm on a Mac so often use SelfControl but if you're on a PC you could try many others.

    Focus Filter might be worth a try, or just google and see if there are any others you prefer.

    But if you really can't beat the procrastination, know that you're in good company

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
