BubbleThere are times when all you want to do is wrap yourself in a bubble and write, shut off from distraction in a zen-like state. Trying to create that bubble, however, becomes the problem itself.

Every noise is amplified, every interruption a hammer blow, all designed to stop you from entering that state.

More time is wasted finding new ways to craft the bubble than would be lost by taking a few moments to just refocus and calm the mind; you become your own engine of distraction.

The bubble cannot be forced. It is best to step away.

At least for now.
