|Mock-up of new front cover|
On the Sunday I got up and walked the dog (typically my first job every Sunday), sat in front of the computer and achieved... absolutely nothing. I had the story in my head but try as I might I just couldn't get it to form. Perhaps it was because I knew this was the last story I had to write for my new collection. However in hindsight I think it was because I didn't procrastinate first. I didn't give my writing muscle time to warm up to the idea that it was going to be used. I didn't allow my subconscious enough time to resolve the plot holes before I sat down. I didn't allow myself enough time to 'get in the zone.' So I've decided next time I have a day of being a 'proper' writer I'll start with a little procrastination first, it's much more productive.
