Can you believe the two characters I was ranting about have finally decided to behave themselves? Up to a point anyway. We seem to have reached a cautious understanding. They do what they should, unless they have a perectly good explanation, or I threaten to pull the computer plug and leave them sulking in the dark for awhile. It seems to be working.
Now I have another rant. Tomorrow night I start work, my 4 weeks holiday is over. I fought these characters the WHOLE TIME! And now I have to go back to work, what happens? Oh yes, the ideas are coming thick and fast, no worries. GRRRRR! I don't believe it!
Is it the pressure that makes my mind start to work properly? Maybe I'm not meant to work well under relaxed circumstances. I do seem to accompaish more when I'm under the hammer.
It doesn't make life easy, however!
Do any of you write better when you're really busy, and under a deadline, or do you write better when things are relaxed?
