I’ve always required a quiet space in order to get any writing done. I can’t concentrate long enough to get anything done if there’s any type of noise in the background. That means no TV. No music. No conversation. No… nothing.
I’ve never understood how some people can work in coffee shops or busy cafes, but what puzzles me, even more, are the folks who actually enjoy it. Whenever I have tried to tune out background sounds and write anyway, it’s been disastrous.
The only thing I managed to accomplish was stressing myself completely out.
