Constance wrote her first book at the age of five. Written in crayon and bound together with string, it was most certainly not a best seller! It was, though, the start of a lifelong love of the written word.

These days, Constance spends some of her time at her perfectly normal day job on the English coast and the rest of her time exploring the mountains of her mind. The view is quite excellent in both places.

She has found that writing is a constant battle between herself and her cat as to who gets use of the keyboard. Apparently it makes a very comfortable bed.

I get myself tied up in knots so much that my brain goes into shut down mode and I can't think of anything at all.

I have long since learned that the best thing to do is walk away for a while. Often literally. I'll go for a long walk, get some fresh air, or maybe head into the kitchen (I love to cook). I'll forgive myself from the guilt of abandoning my writing for a while, and just de-stress. Then, I'll come back at it with fresh eyes.

If that doesn't work, then I'll put aside what I was working on, start with a fresh sheet, and write. Doesn't matter what - could be a different part of the novel. Could be something entirely different. Doesn't matter if it's good - or even if it makes sense! Often the very action of words appearing on the page, or the screen, is enough to get rid of that block.(less)
