It can sometimes be a real challenge to be a writer and today it’s especially so.
The apartment next door is vacant and so the landlord is having it remodeled.
Add to that the next building to this one is being re-roofed.
So as I sit at the computer working on a story the carpenter is hammering and drilling on the other side of the wall behind me. At the same time about six roofing people are ripping chunks off of the top of the place next door and talking as loud as they possibly can.
If I can successfully write a coherent story while surrounded by all of this noise and confusion I’ll be surprised.
I have to admit though that so far the flow of words has continued quite smoothly.
