The Write Way
October 30, 2017 9:38pm CST
Tonight I remembered something that I used to know, but I had forgotten: Writing makes me crabby. After a year away from one particular writing site, I came back and started writing stories again. However, it never fails that when I start writing, one of my kids needs something and I lose my train of thought. In the middle of writing a sentence, my son asks if he can watch one of the shows he downloaded. On my phone. I say no, ignore his whining, and glance back down at my story...only to have one of my daughters tell me that she's cold. I pull out a sweater for her and sit back down only to have the baby start crying for attention. At this point I'm about ready to pull out my hair and I have a hard time not yelling at everyone to just shut up and leave me alone! (Yes folks, even supermoms sometimes lose it with their kids!) It doesn't help that I don't have a real computer to type on right now. Hunting and pecking on a teeny little smartphone is extremely aggravating in and of itself! Not to mention time consuming... And so, seeing that crazy look in my eye, hubby graciously takes the children out to dinner and leaves me to my writing. I sit down in front of my miniature screen, sigh in bliss over the quiet...and immediately come down with a case of writer's block! So how is it with you? Do you need complete silence to be able to write?

@Genipher My place is near a kinder garden school and most of the time they have an outdoor activities but those noises are fine by me and if ever I have a kid here, I`m sure a kid will not cry the wholeday right? not unless you just let the kid suffer and not see what a kid might be needing
