He didn't want any distractions, to the extent that he would sit at his computer blindfolded and would type away in deep concentration. His wife reports that during one session he was deeply immersed in his craft only to discover at the end of it that he had his fingers over one on the keyboard and nothing he had written that day was decipherable.
