Firstly, I make sure I’ve got several projects on the go so that I divide what little energy I have very thinly, and guarantee that in the rare occasions I’m actually typing words that I still have other projects to feel guilty about neglecting.
Secondly, I invented a writing event (novelinaday.com) so I can make sure I have an outlet for story ideas and creative energy that doesn’t count towards my personal projects.
Thirdly, I have a day job that means that, although I spend the day dreaming about writing, I spend any snatched writing time worrying about working.
Fourthly, I have decided to become a YouTuber. I have produced no videos (of course), but have set up a page with an awesome header and logo. I also have a wonderful animated production “vanity card”.
I find these four strategies are generally sufficient to prevent work. In the unlikely event that I do find myself trying to work on that novel, one of two things is destined to happen:
One, Mrs PF will start talking to me (a wonderful distraction, of course), or two...
I visit the Literature and Latte forum.
(PS. I am also really into photography, and play guitar in a band)
