My perfected writing ritual: the secret to never writing a word!

Never write a word with these ten easy steps:

  1. Obsessively clean your computer screen and keyboard.
  2. Correctly set up your word document – fit to page, choose your font, correct the size, justify, double space … or maybe only 1.5 space? … nope, back to double space.
  3. Make a cup of tea.
  4. Look up other (i.e. professional and published) writers’ rituals online.
  5. Go to the toilet after finishing tea.
  6. Spell check the stuff you wrote yesterday.
  7. Practice your autograph for your future book signings.
  8. Make another cup of tea.
  9. Tidy your work area – can’t work in a messy space.
  10. Tweet that you’re currently writing.

Now you can begin … or simply repeat the ritual.

Break time!

Please, please, please tell me you do this too!
