When youre at home; there are roommates, spouses, relatives. Theyre talking, walking around, watching TV, breathing too loud. Youve tried sitting in Starbucks but there are people talking, doors opening and closing, and loud coffee machines whirring.You try to listen to music to drown out the world. But that just distracts you, too.And wherever you are, there are always people texting you, emailing you, face booking you, calling you. How can you avoid them? So you find yourself putting off your writing for yet another day. Yes, there are places that charge you money to rent a little cubicle where everyone agrees to be quiet, but thats expensive. Plus youre taking the time to travel someplace else, when you have a perfectly good desk waiting for you at home.
