I am a list person. I love two books by Simon Whaley: The Positively Productive Writer and Wunderlist for Writers. As you can tell, these probably hold the answers that I need. But I find that if I spend all my time writing and reading, I don't want to know about it any more!
I like to switch off. I find that I don't switch off when I read. My mind is always working. I am often inspired. I then find myself inundated with things to do. But if I just stopped a minute, and wrote a list, and organised myself, perhaps I could then see the wood for the trees.
I know that I have sort of rambled and veered off from what I originally intended. Perhaps I can make it full circle by saying that perhaps I need to surround myself with organised people and read organisation books, and then maybe my writing will be more organised. Because right now, all I know is that I turn up every day, without much time to mull over ideas beforehand, and just do my best.
Do you have any tips? Do you surround yourself with things that inspire you?
