I don’t leave the desk and I still sit here from 8am till 6pm Monday to Thursday. The misconception about writer’s block is that you can’t think of anything to write, but the real manifestation is that the words just come much more slowly. I often find it’s a sign that you’re actually writing the wrong story. My best stuff has always come incredibly fast and, ironically, the stuff that looks rushed is the material I laboured over. But we can’t get too precious about writer’s block. It’s often an excuse. I’ve never met a surgeon of an accountant to has Doctor’s Block or Counter’s Block. It’s a little self-indulgent when you think about it.(less)

It was my ideal job when I was a kid and I never stop appreciating I get to do it every day and get paid at the same time. Also, Twitter. What other career would allow you to waste so much time Twitter every day?(less)
