I think I’ve shot myself in the foot. Or…is there a writing version of that phrase? I’ve unplugged my keyboard?
Anyway, it used to be that if I was having a particularly difficult time with a scene, lying in bed would help untie my mental knots. Ten or twenty minutes after lights out, I’d come tearing out the bedroom with the solution.
Now, when I think about the problems I’m have with my stories, I get really, really sleepy. These days, I’m tearing out of my room less often, but I’m falling asleep much faster.
Any of your writing habits backfire?
