This week we're supposed to talk about writing distractions. I think it would have been easier for me to write about what doesn't distract me. Actually, this post probably would have been empty. Because I can find something interesting in a paperclip if I'm supposed to be writing.
Take this post for instance. I could have simply written a paragraph or two about Twitter and TV, but instead Photoshop distracted me with all the pretty fonts! and pictures! and now this post comes to you with visual aids.
Let's start with the biggest distraction, shall we?
Nothing makes me happier than Twitter. Writing at the same desk everyday in the same house surrounded by the same people can be depressing. Twitter makes me feel less alone.
Plus, it's nice knowing you're not the only crazy writer person out there.
If you know me, you know I am boy crazy. I like my Gosling. My Worthington. My Pitt (it's Michael these days). So this one will certainly not shock you.
I don't have to explain this one.
Or this one.
I call it imagery research. My husband calls it staring off into space. What does he know?
I really have no excuse for this one. Except that I'm a girl.
