Getting to paper and pen in a tornado of distractions

Home More advice Art, Writing & Literature

I'm a beginning writer struggling with getting my thoughts to paper before my bustling family distracts me. By the time I get to paper and pen, the concept is not the same or I simply forgot it. Not to mention my creative thoughts always come at the wrong times... while cooking, driving or taking a shower. Rarely does my best work come from sitting quietly. What is up with that? Is this normal for a writer? What can I do? Any ideas will most certainly be appreciated.
