Ever wondered what sorts of things distract me when I’m editing?

Apparently, everything.

I have figured out that when I’m editing (my least favorite part of the writing process) and when I don’t WANT to be editing (which is whenever I’m editing) I use anything and everything around me as a distraction: my phone, the TV, watering the plants, laundry, dishes, that spot on the computer screen that’s not even there but should probably be cleaned anyway… you name it, it’s distracted me.

The plus side is my apartment is really clean.

What kinds of things do you “let” distract you when you are doing something you’re not the biggest fan of?
