I go and do something else for a while - read, see a movie, go for a walk. A long walk is a really good way to clear the cobwebs.

But at the end of the day, the only way to break out of a block is to write, get the words down on the page, even if they suck.

My motto: you can fix everything in the next draft.(less)

I wrote at least 100 words a day for a year

This time last year, I set myself a small challenge. The goal was to write a minimum of 100 words a day on a side project, other than my main book, every single day of the year.



I did it. As you can probably guess, otherwise I wouldn't be blogging about it.

“«um pessimista é um otimista bem informado» p51”

Mason Cross, The Killing Season

“The most important quality in my line of work is adaptability. Control what you can, but don't expect to control everything. Make plans, but don't be surprised when you have to tear them up and start from scratch. Don't waste time on wishing things were different, deal with them as they are.”
