Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For the purposes of this conversation, I live in a small apartment with roommates and share my PC which is in the living room. I can access it whenever I want but there will be distractions all around me.
I have a hard time staying motivated. It's easiest when everyone is asleep or no one is home; I can typically type/review/complete approximately a page an hour in an essay by using a reward system where I get to leave the computer and play video games for 10m every time my head of steam goes away. What's harder is when there's people around and stuff to do/being done, but other than avoiding distraction, any tips for pounding the thing out and not procrastinating by surfing the net/posting on the H/A forums?
