Fiction Writing Tip #9

Don’t pay your bills at your desk.

In fact, don’t do anything at your writing space other than write. Give your sub-conscious a chance to do its job by keeping the signals clear. If you distract and confuse it with checkbooks and Sunday school lesson plans, you just might lose the muse.

And that muse is a fickle lady. She never promises to stay, and she most definitely never promises to come back.
