Lately, in an effort to break my habit of surfing around the 'net instead of drafting my new middle grade manuscript, I've taken to using a series of Star Wars lines on myself.
"These aren't the droids you're looking for." Click. Close Facebook.
"She can go about her business." Click. Close Google Reader.
"Move along." Click. Stop reading email.
"Move along." Click. Open draft and start writing.
The only thing weird about it is that I must use the slight Obi-Wan wave of my fingers. Otherwise, it doesn't work.
P.S. If you aren't practicing Jedi mind tricks on yourself to get off the Internet this morning, my editor, Cheryl Klein, has re-posted a link to her "Lines from 'Star Wars' That Can Be Improved by Substituting 'Pants' for Key Words."
