Do you find that you're spending too much time on social media, when you should be using your PC to work or study? One program that I'v come across recently is called Cold Turkey. You'll find it HERE and it's an 8 MB download. Once installed, you first need to create a site (or list of sites) to block. There's a built-in list of 24 such sites, which you can use or edit as you wish. You then set a timer to specify how long your access will be blocked for, and that's it. No access to those sites until the timer's up.
What sets Cold Turkey Writer apart from all the other notepad apps out there is that, when you start it up, you're asked to set a target of a certain number of minutes or a specific number of words. Once you've done that, you have no option but to start writing. Because you can't use anything else on your PC and you can't quit the program until you hit target.

Once you've installed (or not - there's a portable option too) Clip Angel, you can add multiple items to your clipboard.
