Quiet isn't something I get a lot of. I have two sons and they make a lot of noise. My partner is a sound engineer and is often making a lot of noise. I work in an open plan office so there is usually quite a bit of noise there too.
And I need quiet to write. I'm not someone who writes with music or the TV on. I need to fall into the world of my story and live in it and if there is a lot of talking or background noise, I find it hard to do that. So I end up writing early in the morning because everyone else is still asleep and it's the only time I get the quiet I need.
And I'm not a morning person. Not by a long shot. I've always felt that I really wake up around 4pm… So getting up at 5:30 every morning for the quiet is not an easy feat.
How do you find the quiet you need?
