I Am Being Driven Mad

THIS is driving me absolutely freaking NUTS. I can't stand the constant noise in this house lately.

My neighbors have a dog that barks for at least a few hours every day and now they have a new baby that must be sick or something because I can hear it crying in the room adjacent to mine ALL THE DAMN TIME. If it's not any of these things, then it's my neighbors to the south hammering things or sawing things or tearing things apart or SOMETHING.

Now there is someone across the street throwing hunks of scrap metal into a truck bed!!!

Are you kidding me?! I cannot take this constant barrage of loud, debilitating, distracting and abrasive noise. How am I supposed to concentrate on ANYTHING.... much less on writing, with this??!

I know how you feel. I would suggest using earplugs. You can also try music or white noise. All of these help me with noise. Also try talking to your neighbors about how the noise is bothering you and ask them nicely to keep it down. Good luck.
