The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

To sum up:

  1. Show up regularly.
  2. Get started, no matter how inspired they’re feeling.
  3. Think on paper.
  4. Get bored, and understand it’s part of the process.
  5. Meet their deadlines no matter the hardship or duress.

Comment:Obviously, if you are going to get writing done you are going to have to show up. It won't surprise you if I confess that when I "fall off the wagon" and don't schedule time everyday for writing, it doesn't get done. So, yeah, #1 is critical. For #2, I find that caffeine really helps (weekdays, I write first thing in the morning). Not so sure about #3, but if I translate this into "barf" mode, then, yeah, getting it written helps with the ideas. Another way to look at #3 is write your ideas down. Take copious notes and consult them as necessary. All I can say about #4 is that I only get bored with the process of writing, not the results. I find that showing up, mood enhancement with caffeine, and keeping the fact that I love having written gets me through the boredom. As to #5, well, that is almost entirely self imposed. See my response to #4.
