I may get an opportunity to have a few hours to myself each week.
Time to myself, people! Every. Week.
Because I’m going to use this time to write.
Here’s the catch. (You knew there was a catch, right?)
If I do the whole “drop-off, drive home, drive back, pick-up” thing, I’ll lose an hour.
So, I need to stay put. I need to be out of my house while I’m writing. I’ve never done this. Correction. I’ve never successfully done this.
I’ve tried coffee shops, tea shops, shoe shops, sweet shops. (No, really, not a sweet shop. In those, I just annoy my kids with how I used to buy Raisinets and Nerds in regular sized packages not the sugar-rush, vomit-inducing size they sell now.)
I don’t understand how people can write in coffee shops or whatnot. I can barely write my name never mind a scene or chapter in those places.
I’m so distracted by the noise and commotion, I can’t concentrate long enough to read the sugar packet I just dumped in my coffee.
I could use some advice. Or an alternative. I’m open to anything. Mostly. Let’s not get crazy.
My Sunday thoughts in 200 words or less.
Can you write outside your house? Where do you go? How do you concentrate? Do you have any other ideas? I’m willing to sit in my car if need be.
