Reminder to Self

When you sit there looking at the screen for an hour and only get four sentences into the chapter before faltering, there’s a reason for it. That reason is that you’re talking rubbish and the scene’s almost always superfluous. Your choice now is to either waste your life trying to write this and then get it deleted by the Lord High Editor, or get to the bloody point…

Little advice for any budding authors out there, sometimes you just have to accept that what you’ve just written is complete toss and should be burned. It will save you hassle later on if you don’t think too hard about it and just grab that delete button in both hands, so to speak!

  1. Alternatively, bring a man on toting a gun – or in my case, raise someone from the dead, it’s surprising how the words then start flowing – of course, until the next time! Arrgghh!

    Then there’s that deadline looming, oh boy is it LOOMING!
