“Not writing is not easy. With it comes guilt, fear, shame, a writer’s trifecta for failure.
Writers tend to be superstitious and have their own personal rituals for cleansing themselves before they sit to write. Most bring a hot cup of coffee, other’s invite their cat or dog near their desk and wait for them to settle in to sleep while they work. Personally, I turn off my email, Skype, and lock the door to my office after announcing to all those nearby, “I’m off to write,” which another way of saying, If you disturb me, they’ll be hell to pay.” – Phyllis E. Davis, author, The Ruin of Charles Lynch.
