Cheating

I am a world-class procrastinator. If procrastinating were an Olympic discipline, I’d probably be doing something else that day. The way I keep myself writing, other than snatching time from the jaws of a full-time job, is to procrastinate writing by doing other writing. It’s okay to cheat on my radio play for the OU, if I’m doing some work for Broken Gears or Secret Comic Script B (formerly known as Secret Comic Pitch B). I have to keep doing this as I found out the hard way that writing is a lot easier if you do it every day. Once the breaks stretch into days, even weeks, then getting back into it is nigh-on impossible.

The context of all of this? This morning I wrote the first sentence of the novel that I’ll start writing in May after the OU is done with me. Happy days.
