In Praise of Boredom

A little while ago I was asked to contribute a guest post to Strictly Writing, a collaborative blog run by a fellow writer, Caroline Green, whose book for young adults, Dark Ride, will be published in May by Piccadilly Press.

At the time I was struggling to get started on my second novel. Everything in the world seemed more attractive than sitting down, clearing my head and really thinking. What I needed was a good dose of doing nothing. I wrote my guest post, and then I started book two.
