I timebox my writing time, meaning I have specific time which I set aside for writing. When the clock strikes Write O'clock, I have two options:

1. Work on creative stuff (yay!)

or if I've got writer's block,

2. Work on boring stuff I set aside for myself to work on while I was being creative.

For example, I hate describing people's clothing. I have no sense of fashion, thus it annoys me to no end having to describe anything that anyone in my book is wearing. So, I save that for "Writer's Block Tal." It's his job to do the stuff that "Creative Tal" doesn't want to do.(less)

“This is like a reverse clown car.”

“When railroads were first introduced, some people thought the speed would be so intense, it would cause their organs to shoot out of their rectums”
Tal M. Klein, The Punch Escrow

“Imagine looking in the mirror and not knowing who you are. An empty face staring back. No one. We rarely think about how much air is around us until we can’t breathe. We always imagine what it would be like to be someone else, but when we do so, it’s with the guise that beneath it all, we know who we really are. Take that away, and who are we?”
Tal M. Klein, The Punch Escrow
