How To Beat Writer's Block

Several easy to follow steps :

1) Break your computer. Hardware is preferable, but in a pinch anything that requires you to shut down the computer at once and makes you call someone to look inside, will do. Bonus points if just listening to the noise from inside makes you do this.
2) Go to work, or somewhere far, far away from any other computer/word processor.
3) Let your pen run out of ink.
4) Gently muse away in the background while doing a boring, mundane, repetitive task.

Your brain will then immediately produce solutions for things that you have been stuck on for weeks. Dialogue, actions and scene orders will fall into place like a beautifully simple jigsaw.

And you have no way at all to write it down.

Mutter, grumble, growl. It's times like this when you know the universe has a sense of humour. And that it's aimed directly at you.

In other universe-out-to-get-me related spots, I ran into several 80's music lyrics questions recently that produced the usual "I know that! I know that! What the hell IS that?!?" response. Anyone else fancy the challenge?

If you'll excuse me, Neighbours From Hell(mouth) is calling.

Oh, frabolous day

Finally, finally, finally finished another part of Neighbours From Hell(mouth). I've been trying since December to get this part finished, but no dice until now. It's now winding its way through the internet to my very nice beta for a final polish, so I'm quite happy now. Quite, quite happy.

Side-note : Due to my computer clock messing up before, I've had to alter the time on this just to get it to post. Grrr. Sometimes I think Luddites had the right idea several centuries too early.
