Win a Signed Copy of Distraction

As I announced on Twitter, 500 followers means a giveaway of the UK/US edition of Distraction.

To enter the competition, leave a comment of 25 words or less, detailing your worst distraction. Then sign it with your Twitter name.

I'll choose my favourite comment, based on some vague criteria of sniggering and nodding.

The giveaway closes on 6am, Thursday 1st December, Melbourne time.

I'll announce the winner soon afterwards, and brand new, signed copy of Distraction will be on its way to the lucky someone.

My greatest distraction is my husband trying to talk to me while I am concentrating on Twitter. Or is this just an interruption?

Don José said...

My greatest distraction is my rational mind, that tries constantly to make sense of the complex World around me. @jose_vr

Leafing through a book (hiding really) in the bathroom someone knocks on the door and says: "Hurry up gotta pee". Grrr.

Malyn said...

Twitter is my greatest distraction, especially because I follow the '1's. Should I switch to '0's?

Right now, my worst distraction was to be offered a free, signed copy of the book, Distraction

Checking my iphone on public transport, people watching is so much more interesting but not as addictive.

Grammatical errors on the Internet. It's like an under the skin itch that can't be effectively scratched until you've corrected the author! @timwattsau

My worst distraction is one that afflicts adolescent boys, but that I am yet to grow out of. I wish this were a joke, but no, it is quite serious, even if it isn't to blame for my deteriorating eyesight. @ohpointybird

My days are littered with distractions from my dissertation. From dog wrestling to tart baking, they undermine my progress yet produce a far happier life. @hat_stand

Three year old yelling 'Mummy', five year old screaming 'Muuuum', husband shouting 'Darling...'. Greatest distraction? The mixed blessing of being needed. @suziecardwell

My greatest distraction is the 2011 AFL Grand Final. I've watched it twelve times now. It just keeps getting better.

My greatest distraction is re-runs of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, especially when I have a deadline!

My greatest distraction is the stack of books on my beside table. Shall I dive into Being in Time, Simulation and Simulacra, The structure of scientific revolutions or Nietzsche, my dreams are always unusual.

My greatest distraction is the tension between my diverse interests - a longing to soak up films, music and books - and my increasingly short attention span.

My greatest distraction is procrastination in many insipid and seasonal forms.

My greatest distraction is nice weather and having fishing gear at hand @volatilerose

dudeskeeroo said...

Having imaginary arguments, with people I know, but all in my head, while assuming their (opposing) position and views without warrant. I usually win. :) @aaronpp

Earning money to feed my kids is my greatest distraction. I'd have written the great Australian novel by now if not for their growth spurts.
