I've got a couple links for you.
First on the list: 10 writing rules you can (and should) break. Okay, so some of the things he's listed as a 'rule' I'd never heard of before. While I can see the wisdom in them I'm all in favor of breaking them judiciously. Are there any you've never heard of?
Next: Ways to declutter your writing. I thought this had some great suggestions of things to watch out for.
Hope you enjoy them.

I often see writers asking each other how to stay focused. It's easy to get distracted by internet, laundry, life. Sitting down and writing a tough scene isn't always the favorite thing to do.
There are as many solutions as there are writers. For me, it's all about wanting it. If I keep my goal in mind, how much I want to be published, have a book in stores and libraries, have something that others will read and love, then it's easy to prioritize. Because I won't get that without putting in the work.
Writing is hard, you have to want it, and, if you want it enough, focus is easy.
