I teach and work online.  I am also easily distracted.  Not a good combination.

To combat distraction, I write everything by hand.  I have notebooks filled with tests, books, blogs, and tips I have written.

I find I am much less distracted when I write by hand.  Once I have the test, book, or blog written, I can transfer it to my computer.

I know.  It’s prehistoric.  But, what did you expect?  I am a Latin teacher, after all.

By the way, if you write just two pages a day, and if you did it six days a week, you could write a 626 page book in a year.  Little by little, it adds up.

Anyway, if you find yourself distracted while working online, it may help to switch back to the old ways for a while.


Almost every Saturday, I send out a Tip of the Week.  The tip of the week is usually something I have picked up along the way that may make your life a little easier.  If you would like to hear from me (almost) every Saturday, just go to the home page of my site and plug in your name and email.   You will also get a free digital copy of my book on learning Latin (and almost anything else).  Just go here: https://dwanethomas.com/

If you want to buy the digital book instead (because you just feel like buying me a cup of coffee) go here: https://dwanethomas.gumroad.com/l/fzixlh

If you are interested in learning Latin, you can go through the classes on my site 24/7.  I recommend the book Lingua Latina by Hans Ørberg.  If you tackle the book and find yourself bogged down, you may find the classes on my site helpful.  To join, just click here: https://dwanethomas.com/join/

If you want a more professionally filmed experience, check out the best-selling DVD series: Visual Latin.

Or, if you want to skip Latin, and just jump right into learning English words from Latin and Greek roots, you may enjoy the series Word Up!  Warning.   Word Up! is a bit wacky.  You will learn a lot… but, you may find yourself rolling your eyes, too.
I teach other languages on my site, too.  The current schedule is here: https://dwanethomas.com/live-classes/
