Having access to phone, TV, radio and Internet is a key to modern life for most people, but they're a distraction if you're trying to get some reading or writing done. Our advice is to not even allow a phone in the room, but if you must, at least silence the ringer while you're working. Television really has no place in a reading and writing room, but Internet is a little trickier. Some writers need the Internet as a research tool, but it can easily lead to e-mail checking and non-essential Web surfing. Consider unplugging or turning off your wireless option when it comes time to actually put pen to paper.
