Feeling Like I’ve Lost My Space

For me having the right space to write in is very important. I need to feel like I can disconnect from everything else and really lose myself in the process. Lately, for longer than I can really tolerate, I feel like I’ve completely lost my space. It’s rare that I am totally on my own anymore and feel like I can completely lose myself without outside distractions. I know this is not entirely fair, due to the layout of my house my computer is in a common area. Honestly, there is some responsibility on me to learn to work with what I have.

On the other hand, I feel like occasionally it’s a lack of respect for me and what I do as work. If I went to someone else’s job and hovered at their desk interrupting them, demanding their attention, or making it difficult for them to focus they would rightfully be upset. Since I work from home I often feel like no one takes it seriously or understands that my “work” hours are not normal hours. I might want to write at 9:30 at night (am doing so now), and I simply need to be left alone.

At the end of the day it’s an excuse though. I have writing to get done, and I am not doing enough of it. Not feeling comfortable in my space is something that makes it challenging, but I need to force myself to work around that. My comfort level cannot be my success level otherwise I will never be successful.

I am looking forward to a time where I can truly create my own space within to work however. A room on my own set up for me, where I can close the door, and shut out the world. Losing myself in my space and in the process is extremely helpful, being unable to do so has becomes extremely frustrating.
