Dear everyone railing against "multitasking": you listen to music while writing, don't you? Then blame something else entirely for lack of focus.

And even if multitasking was a problem: how... how exactly do you need outside help to... simply ignore your web browser for an hour at a time and just write?! It's called self-discipline. Grow some.

And please don't blame neurodivergence on it. I grow bored easily. My mind flutters around. I can waste too much time fussing over details instead of making progress.

All this can be overcome. It's your brain.
