When I write, I like to be completely free of any distractions. Perhaps because I happen to be the type of person that is so very easily distracted. Just now, I stopped typing to look out the window because I heard something, then I ate five blueberries. Now I have to hit rewind on that tape in my brain, and try to get back on track.
Distractions are a constant struggle for me though. Not just when I write. There are distractions all around me. At home, at work, and any other place I happen to be. I’m like a cat, or dog, that has to explore everything around them. How on earth did I survive high school without ending up in the special needs class? I’m stumped.
My poor husband, constantly getting shushed. I feel bad, but, what can I do? The only time I’m not dealing with distractions is when I’m sleeping or reading a really good book. In those cases my mind is so withdrawn from the real world to notice anything.
So my question is, how do you deal with distractions?
