So once I had my moment of inspiration, the next thing I had to do was work on it. Like most of us I have to deal with distractions, external and internal. External distractions can easily be dealt with. I go somewhere quiet.
Like writers from centuries past, I’m lucky to have a place I call my own. All I need do is turn off the television, log off the Internet and switch off my phone.
Wait – Dickens, Thackery and Swift never had these distractions, did they? No, they didn’t. But they did have a place where they could write.
