I should calculate the number of interruptions I have during any given writing session, but I'm afraid it would be too depressing. I have a process for getting started writing, which includes checking my email, answering any messages that I can answer quickly, checking the news online to see if there are any new headlines, then checking my favorite blogs. Then I check email one more time. Once all that is done, I can get started.
It's my process. Don't question it.
But every time I am interrupted, I have to go through the process all over again. Check email. Answer email. Check news. Check blogs. Check email again. Start writing.
It's a miracle I get any books written at all. I should probably work on shortening my process.
