I made the most progress on the book when I spent a week dressed as a Wizard with Mr B dressed as a Pixie! We hired the coolest hobbit house near Mendocino and hammed it up for a few days!
I got so much written, mainly early mornings
when I couldn’t sleep! Being away from all the usual crap really helped me stop faffing around and get on with it!
We had fun among the Redwoods and I just found that it helped! The best bit of advice I was given was keep going even if it’s crap! It works, believe me when I say this. After about 30 false starts “Jonny Green Eyes” was going nowhere fast-I pressed on and bingo I had 30,000 words!
