Are you having trouble developing a habit of writing?
The Pomodoro Technique can help. It’s a time management technique developed by Francesco Cirillo. Writers using this technique can break down their work into focused, uninterrupted blocks of approximately 25 minutes.
After one 25 minute block of writing, it’s OK to take a short two to three-minute break; that’s just enough time to check email or a social media feed. After four Pomodoros, writers should take a longer 10-20 minute break; that’s enough time for lunch.
Users of the Pomodoro Technique record their progress in a log book and if they are interrupted during a Pomodoro, they should consider that Pomodoro void. The thinking behind this technique is the experience of flow and focus while you write.
In other words, you can avoid distractions and procrastination. Tracking each Pomodoro means users gain a better understanding of how long your writing project is taking and what’s interrupting their progress. This kind of tracking will also help you develop a habit of writing everyday.
