I have a hard time writing at my house because I don't have a space dedicated to it, and the every day distractions of the house get to me: "Oh, there's a dirty towel. I should do laundry. The dishes could be loaded, too." So I go to coffee shops sometimes, but then I get distracted by other peoples' conversations, or strangers want to start a conversation with me (I live in Texas, so that's to be expected). The libraries here are full of small children because I live in the suburbs where stay-at-home moms make up a huge portion of the population, and they frequently take their kids to the library for something free to do, especially in the summer when it's extremely hot outside. What works for you?
