Finally behaving themselves!

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?

I don't know about 'better' but I sure write faster when I'm on deadline. I once wrote ten chapters in 3 days (with only about 2-3 hours of sleep)just because of a writing deadline. And all the while, I was lambasting myself for not getting it accomplished sooner.

Then I worried that it might be done, but was it any good? LOL
