Apparently, this is how I work:


1. Shiny new idea!!! Must think about ways to make it good.

2. Think think think think.

3. I can’t stand the wait! Must start writing!

4. write write write

5. Holy crap, I’m just about at the end of the book and it’s only 34,000 words long? Why didn’t I think more before I started? If I don’t figure something out, I’m going to have to ditch all the work I’ve done on this shiny idea!

6. Think think think self-recrimination think think think.

7. Hey… what about [completely obvious thing]? Oh! Think think think think.
