A long time ago I got my own office at home, a place of my own to be productive. But, I have found the opposite. I have too much stuff in my office and so when I am there I don’t get much done at all.
Today has been a good example, I came out this morning and have worked from Costa, the library, and Wetherspoons. Without the distractions of my office I have managed to get a first draft of a short story done, something I would never have managed had I just been working at home.
I can see why so many writers go to cafes to write, I just get so much more done. I am going to have to look at how I can do this in my working life. It’s worth the price of a cuppa to get a good hour or two of writing done.
