My return to NaNoWriMo today was less than successful as I was interrupted by family members calling, wanting to talk, or just wanting to cuddle (this would be my dogs/wife).
First, my wife wanted to cuddle on the couch, but I told her I needed to write so she let me go.
Next, my brother texted me and wanted me to get on skype to talk. While we were talking my other brother got on and so it conversation went way longer than anticipated.
Then, my father-in-law called and spent 25 minutes talking to me about sports.
Then the internet went out. (which I use the internet a lot when I write so not having it is like missing a hand.)
So now I am frustrated, my creative energies have been totally thrown off, and I just want to go to bed.
How do you deal with family distractions? Would this series of events put you off your writing, or am I just being silly?
Well, I suppose some good can come from this, I can tell my wife I am ready to cuddle now. :)
