I sit down, open the file and begin working on my manuscript when —

1) I suddenly decide this is the perfect time to brush the dog

2) A flash of hunger has me raiding the refrigerator

3) I have the urge to go look for that lost sock

4) The dog has to go out for a walk

5) I decide to get rid of all that dog hair on the rug

6) The cat needs feeding

7) I discover an old manuscript that looks far more interesting at the moment

8) I write this article for the blog

9) I decide to check something in a reference book that's around here somewhere...

10) I notice the plants need watering

11) I start looking up the agents and publishers who just might be interested in the manuscript I'll start working on in just another minute or two...
