Writing Woes

I have discovered that I have some problems with my writing. There are always periods when I feel like I struggle to write, but this one is a bit different. Since moving in with the boyfriend, writing has become extra difficult.

We share a desk, and I’ve realised that I find it incredibly awkward to write when sitting next to someone. Writing, to me, is a solitary activity – and sitting right next to someone who is busy playing games, sometimes chatting to friends on Skype; it’s really putting me off!

I wish I was able to write anywhere, under any circumstances. But as it turns out, I need things my way to be able to do it.

It’s extra frustrating, because I really want to get back to it. I am slowly plotting a series of shorter stories set in a fantasy world. It’s basically just romance stories with a fantasy setting. I have no great plans for them other than publishing them either here on the blog, or on a separate blog dedicated to the series of stories. (Since there’s quite a few if I continue them all.)

Naturally, I also want to do the finishing bits on my two written books, and finally continue on the third (and eventually fourth, to finish the series). These I want to release on Kindle and/or other e-book publishers, since you can do that on your own.

I have so many ideas, y’all. I just need to figure out how I will be able to write with someone next to me. Help!

So. Many. Ideas.

So. Many. Ideas.

  1. Do you have a laptop? You might just be someone who needs to be alone to write. Another person there would definitely be distracting; I know some people can’t write with music, even.

    • Unfortunately, I no longer own a laptop. I used to have one, but I “gave” it to my nephew. By “gave”, I mean that I let him borrow it when I moved to England, and when I came back he was adamant that since I had left it behind it was now his. (This is the logic of a four year old.)

      Unable to break a four year old’s heart, it is now his laptop *lol* (It was really quite bad anyway, it had a bug that made the touchpad activate even if you weren’t touching it, making writing nearly impossible, since it would randomly move your cursor!)

      If I can’t get past this inability to write with someone next to me, I may have to invest in a new laptop.
