So, I have this story I'm working on - and as of current - I am working on the background information and research for the story's plot, setting, etc. This is the only story that I have actually taken time on and hadn't jumped inside it yet. I came up with the idea about one and a half week ago and I'm still working on the plot. I spent a decent amount of days on the research itself, and I still feel like it's a little underdeveloped. Well, here is my issue, every time I spark an idea and grab my notebook to write it down, I'm always being distracted by someone or something. For example, I'll be sitting in my room writing and my father will holler for me from in the living room and he will tell me to sit down with him (usually to just spend time with him) or it's usually over something completely pointless (like, to fetch the remote); and as soon as I return to my bedroom, the inspiration for the story is gone. I'll either lose the will to write or lose the idea I had. It really irritates me to no end because the little free time I do find (aside from working 5 days a week and attending school on my days off) I'm always distracted and basically not given the time to write. Have any of you gone through this? And if so, can you please provide me with some helpful tips on how to escape the distractions and have time to write? I already go to one place every once in a while (the local library) but I'm usually distracted while I'm there too, due to my father wanting me to get him something from the store (he has me do this because I'm already in town). Sincerely, aimi_aiko ps. It has, once again, been much too long since my last thread post. Lol.
