Matt here, how the devil are you all?
Oh… jeez, sorry I asked… 🙁
Well, the good news is I’m doing great and nifty and neato. I’m really in the groove on this draft of Other London 2. It’s nice when the words flow, because that’s not always the case! Sometimes it’s a struggle. You need to write, you want to write, there are deadlines looming, but gosh-darn it, you just can’t seem to put yourself in the chair and start banging out those words.
I don’t believe in writer’s block, but there is such a thing as writer-being-unfocussed-and-easily-distracted. When you actually get going and start writing, it’s fun, but somehow you can forget that and any distraction is a good distraction. Yes, these twenty vids on Youtube must be watched this minute! Or: yes, this baby has a full nappy and must be changed!
Okay, maybe that second one is a pretty good reason to delay writing….
Anyway, with every project I seem to have to get past that hump, and then it’s plain sailing, baby. Well, mostly. Sometimes for as much as a whole week at a time!
Basically, a writer’s worst enemy when it comes to productivity is themselves, and boy-oh-boy, I can be a really, really good enemy.
So, who’s looking forward to Other London 2?
The release date is only a handful of months away, and then it’ll be time to walk with Stella Familiar, Carlisle, and all the others on those secret, dangerous streets…
