Where there's a will...there's a way
My home at that hour of the morning has too many distractions, I get up at 5.45am and the family follows in staggered fashion through till 6.30. Our house sounds something similar to a symphony orchestra of alarm clocks in the morning as we all quietly (me), moan and complain (boys) and generally loud (hubby) drag ourselves out of bed.
Work in the morning is also out of the question, because despite the fact that I get to work an hour before my starting time, it's not practical for writing undisrupted. I get there earlier because then I dodge the hideous morning rush hour traffic and then I have my breakfast and read my emails and favourite blog posts.
So while all of that would be conducive to me writing my pages, my boss - god bless his little a-type personality - often has something for me to do or a question to be answered. Sometimes I wonder whether he sleeps in the building because he's there at the crack of dawn and leaves after sundown.
So the perfect solution - I sat in my car in the car park and wrote. No disruptions from the family and I still miss the crazy traffic, plus working mode hasn't begun until I enter the building.
It's entirely true that if you want something bad enough you can make it happen. So in answer to my question in yesterday's post "how bad do I want it" - my answer - real bad!
What do you want really bad?
