Those times when the writing gets difficult and my mind starts looking for distractions…in other words my mind goes looking for more pleasant experiences. Writing is pleasant when it is happening easily, when I am in the flow, not so when I am hacking through the undergrowth for those elusive words.

The easy course is to follow the distractions, only to later regret the wasted time and lack of productivity. The more difficult action is to breathe into the resistance and try and get some words down anyway.
