I wrote a thing!  
Except it's an essay on writing, not, you know, a story. But there are a few good tips in there, especially on getting through a block.

Absolutely nothing useful on dealing with procrastination. I have many faults, but hypocrisy is not one of them!

You can read it here at the lovely hd_writers comm.

I have many other things I want to write about and comments to comment, but I will be run off my feet until after Easter and apologise in advance. But I did have brunch with sinden and pollymel and they were brilliant! Though they encouraged me to have two hot chocolates, never again! I will try to make some time, though, Australian politics has gone wholly pear-shaped, again and needs satirising.

Having said that, it remains more actually functional than either the US or the UK. It's sort of like clowns performing rocket science …

I left a comment over there but just wanted to thank you here for the link. It's always interesting to read how others write.

Also, geez, politics. We have our state election on Saturday. I'm... rather over it. But agree with you that at least it's less crazy that UK and US.

That was a very interesting essay. I keep thinking I should start writing again, or drawing again and some of your comments really got under my skin. Hopefully they'll get me to actually do something. i waste so much time these days.

Looking forward to another political satire:)

Doesn't that sound familiar? :D
I've been in the same boat for a while, which is why I challenged myself to write 100 words per day. It's surprisingly easy to stick with that schedule - at least, if there's no pressure to make the drabbles relate to each other. ;)

Good luck with getting started again. :)

Thanks. I think I'll try your suggestion. If I can't manage 100 words, i have more serious issues:)

Haha, probably.

Have fun. I know I'm (still ^^) enjoying myself.

Hey there! I'm just catching up on your page after an apparent LJ absence of nearly two years (didn't seem that long, but that's what my archives tell me)... I'm reading your interview and I just had to write and say I love what you say about JKR's world. It is just like a partially finished coloring book, where whole stretches are empty of color or fine detail, just waiting to be filled in.
