First rule of writing: Apply

7/16/10 — First rule of writing: Apply sitter to seat of chair.

Second rule: Don’t get up until actual progress has been made. (Note: this does not include answering email, or checking FaceBook, or surfing the Web, or falling back asleep.)

Ergo: If you are a slow writer like me, a comfy chair is handy.

Tah-dah! My new writing limo — sleek, powerful, full of unleashed potential. Varoom!
