Finally, November is Here

“Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now.”
– Ernest Hemingway

It’s National Novel Writing Month. That means you’ve got no more excuses not to write that story you’ve always wanted to tell. And no, having to check your e-mail 246 times a day is not an excuse. Neither is the new season of Westworld coming out.

Discipline is Overrated

“It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write.”
– Steven Pressfield

Conventional wisdom tells you to rely on ‘discipline’. But discipline can be very hard to come by when you’re working on your computer. When you write on the same machine that allows you to watch thousands of hilarious cat videos on Youtube, you’re just asking for trouble.


Belief, However, Is Not

Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot of difference.
– Stephen King

We really believe in you, you know. We’re convinced of your ability to write a masterpiece novel, and we want to help you do that. Now, we can’t hold your hand and force you to sit down and write. We also can’t bring you coffee or make you lunch. What we can do for you, is get rid of all those nasty distractions that stop you from becoming the next Stephen King or J.K. Rowling.

During Nanowrimo, You Have To Write 50,000 Words A Month
That’s About 1600 Words Per Day. Literally Anyone Can Do That.

Imagine: How Many Words Would You Be Able To Write Instead Of

Watching Two Episodes Of
Black Mirror

Playing A Few Rounds
Of Overwatch

Spending Two Hours on
Twitter and Facebook

Probably Quite a Lot.
1600 Words? DEFINITELY!

Prevents you from clocking off six hours of World of Warcraft every day

Makes sure you don’t have too much of a social life

  • This software literally changed my life. For the past 4 years, I fell victim to my own distractions which decreased my productivity. However, with the help of this amazing program, I have been able to set them aside and work towards what truly mattered, my future. Words can't describe the burden that was lifted off me and I hope it can do the same for others who try it.

  • This has been a total game-changer for me. I tried willpower (didn't work). I tried other software (was hard to use). FocusMe is super easy to use and does exactly what it says. Some of the features (like forcing yourself to enter in random characters to override it) are genius. This has dramatically increased my productivity. I block Outlook and Facebook and I'm good to go! Anyone/everyone that struggles with distractions on your computer should buy this.

  • I've used Freedom and Cold Turkey, but FocusMe beats both. This little program provides you with tailor-made internet blocking. It features options that make it completely impossible to bypass scheduled internet blocks. FocusMe supports to Zen-life: Less distractions and more focus.

  • FocusMe is an outstanding piece of software. It is incredibly feature-rich without being overwhelming or overly complicated in its setup. I am now using it on two Windows 10 devices and one Android device, and have found in all cases, under different configurations, that it is very effective in blocking the distracting apps and websites you have selected, by one of the many means of filtering FocusMe offers. Highly recommended for curbing internet and app addiction, and enabling deep focused work. Top job FocusMe!

  • I recommend FocusMe for a truly configurable way to block access to time-wasting websites, apps, and social media, during only those times you wish to be kept off. I spent a good deal of time looking and comparing, and all other options fell short. I wanted something that I would not be able to disable without enough of a headache to make it a deterrent, and FocusMe has an option of a random password of any character length you choose. I'm not going to struggle through trying to undo a 45 character random assortment of letters and numbers just to access my Facebook feed. Lastly, there's a pleasant, accessible human being, based in London, who tackles customer service situations in something like record time.
