I always go to my desk dressed as if I’m at the office. Hair, makeup, heels, and today, this really fun ring I bought when we were in Napa. Or maybe it was Sonoma. I can’t recall. What I do remember is thinking it was a neat piece and it would come in handy (ha ha) for when I finally got back to writing and needed something to inspire me when I got stuck. It’s working pretty well. As I’ve previously confessed, I’m easily distracted. But at this moment the laundry is still in the washing machine, the dishes are still in the dishwasher, and my butt is still at my desk.

What do you do to help you stay focused on your work?
