Things are picking up in my expansion of the book from less than 120K first novel to your standard fantasy doorstop so I’m plugging away. And wouldn’t you know it, there are a number of distractions on the small screen: Twins spring training baseball, the North Dakota Class B boys basketball tournament, and of course, round two of the NCAA big dance. So basically I will sit in the living room with my laptop, stereo on, and switch between channels now and then.
Having the stereo on instead of the TV volume up is a must. Voices are a distraction, especially strident sports announcer voices. We get it guys, you’re excited. Sheesh. So the stereo plays disc after disc while I churn out words and occasionally check the score. It seems to work. And that is about all the weekend excitement I am prepared to take.
Have a good one.
