Am I easily distracted? Yes. Research distracts me. I start off looking for one thing and think - oh that looks interesting and click on that, and then on that, and that and before I know where I am, I'm checking out which beach in Chile is the most dangerous - only to find there has been a mass landing of crustaceans and the beach is covered with prawns. Now, I need to look further. This has nothing to do with the story I'm writing. I was supposed to be looking up kite surfing. Oh well, I might be able to use the prawn covered beach at some point.
