Aha!

See? It’s not my fault!

Let me explain.

According to this article, “physical clutter in your surroundings competes for your attention, resulting in decreased performance and increased stress.”

So, in other words, when I’m stressing over or not feeling my writing, it’s not my fault. It’s all this clutter! (thank you, children)

The article also tells me that clutter impairs my ability to think creatively. And it’s not just physical clutter – it’s digital, too! Stealing focus and working memory…very mean.

I knew I’m not to blame when I get stuck on my work in progress.

Oh, wait. I think my office and bathroom just reminded me who created the messes there.

And now I hear more voices from all over the house…

Never mind.
