    How do you find a quiet place when you have just found a new HUB subject to expound upon?

    Where is the place for you? Do you retreat or stay where other family are friends around such as in the living room with tv going?

    Our perfect quiet, can be found, out in nature, all around.

    My background as a reporter working in a newsroom, made it necessary that I learn to filter out all the distractions around me so I could write. That carried over my public relations career, when the phone was always ringing or people were asking me questions. Thus the quite place has to be for me, an attitude. I have to envisioned that quite place in my mind and disregard all of the other distractions and then be able to leave that place to take a phone call or answer a question and then go back to it. I do not think I am unique in this aspect. Anyone who worked in a newsroom with eight other people typing, talking on telephone, getting angry, slamming books and talking to people who come in with a news release and then want to visit, have to learn how to filter out those distractions.

      Experienced answer for sure. I worked as assistant Ad mgr during one summer after Undergrad school. I learned to do this as well. You have lots of insightful ideas within your comment and I again Larry appreciate your comment! Happy Hubbing!

    It's so tough to find a quiet place, so I usually wait for the quiet place to find me...when everyone else is at school or work and the dog is tired of playing. Otherwise, I work in the family room -- tv, barking dog, and all.

    It is just my husband and myself now, so I have no problem finding a quiet place.

    Let's just say those long bathroom breaks come in handy on many occasions.  I also found that by sitting in my car sometimes during my lunch hour, my mind can generate some amazing ideas.

    I drive to the lake by my house and write in silence.

    Great question. I use to get up a couple hours earlier than my husband and get my writing done. Now, he too has become and early riser and my quiet time is broken. During the day, I find there are too many distractions. I need to take my laptop upstairs and close the door.
