The development of a book proposal for Antarctic Tears, my current working title, is going along nicely. Being able to spend significant hours working on the chapter outline, market and promotion sections of the book in a relatively distraction-free environment has been a boon to productivity.
It seems that I am one of the types of authors who needs to be free of dawdling distractions, where food and basic resources are readily available but distracting wi-fi is not. This sort of writing seems to be better done in an isolated location than in with the regular living situation.
Although I enjoy my time with friends and family immensely, it is easy to be diverted, creating procrastination with their presence. What a conundrum.
