Lately, I've been a highly distracted ferret creature when I'm supposed to be writing. I've got deadlines coming out of my ears right now, so I really need to focus and get my work done. But how?? I'm a firm believer in needing to be able to write wherever, whenever. When writing professionally, there's no waiting for the mood to strike. Deadlines don't care about moods. No, for me, it's about forcing myself to focus. Once I'm focused on writing, it's suddenly a lot more appealing to continue.
