Ah Ha!

so it appears that the secret to being able to make progress on a book is to pick up the laptop and get out of the house. for the past few days i've been taking over a table at either borders or starbucks *, turning off the wireless network connection, and writing away.

it turns out that when i don't have a TV, a game boy advance, a game cube, a gigantic pile of dvd's, and the entire internet to distract me, i can actually write! i'm not sure if it's any good mind you, but hey, it's progress!

* yeah, it's kind of lame, but we don't have any non-starbucks type coffee shops around here, at least not that i'm aware of, and it's just too expensive to go to borders every day, i have this little will power problem when it comes to books...
