I tried to work on TYM, but could not get much done.
The distraction is largely self-made. In fact, I have already restricted my email and blog time to evening. Still, too many activities during day time.
For academic writing, long time concentration is a must. In particular, one needs long warm up time to get into the zone. Therefore, to get the revision done on schedule, I must block the morning doing nothing but writing. Also, I must reduce other activities.
