    For me they are unavoidable.. I have a 2 and 1/2 year old.. LOL.. My friends and family don't consider what I do to be a "job" so I get many interuptions. I always carry a note book around with me so I can jot down the thoughts I don't get to write!

    Don't get married and don't have kids. That's the only answer I have.

    I also have kids who need help with homework, require lifts to and from sport events and sometimes need to borrow the laptop I use to write hubs since one of our computer├Ęs harddrive died.  It means that my present hub will take longer to complete but oh well, my kids come first.  I wish I could figure out how to get my IPad able to write capsules.  So far no luck!

    Interruptions from my husband and son can never be ignored so even if I am too busy with writing, I have to stop. Like Tammy and Teresa, family comes first. smile

    I think the key to avoid interruptions by planning your day. You can try to write hubs while the child is napping, for example, wake up early or stay up late so you can write while the family is sleeping.  You can go out to a library or coffee shop to do your writing, or designate a particular time to write and close the door and insist that no one interrupt you during that time.

    This is not always possible, so I try to structure my day so that I am reading hubs, answering questions, responding to comments during the time when I am expecting to be interrupted.  Then when I think things are likely to be more quiet, then I research and write hubs.  I always try to write down my ideas and keep track of where I left off, so that when I do get an interruption, I can come back and resume where I left off.

    Learn to ignore them. I can block out everything around me and focus on what I'm reading or listening to. It took me years to acomplish though. I was homeschooled and spent all my afternoons in the secure walls of my room. The sounds of my brother, sister, and mother talking to each other would drift up to my bedroom and I wouldn't even realize what was going on. Stuck in my own little bubble.
