I drink too much coffee. I piss about doing things that won't help. Eventually, I give up and sit down to write. One of my favorite techniques for getting going after a fallow period is to abandon projects I care about and come up with something to work on that I consider completely absurd and silly. Oddly enough, that technique has led to a number of sales: Brieanna's Constant, The Tao of Flynn, How I Met My Alien Bitch Lover, and others.(less)

The former has made me more patient and accepting, though I still find that I occasionally rely on the crutch of righteousness in order to avoid understanding. The latter keeps alive my hope for the human race.(less)

There is a legend that tells of Ray Bradbury and Robert Heinlein sitting down in front of the fireplace one evening with a bottle of brandy, and each of them burning one million unpublished words.
