Preparing for the next day’s writing

Joan Bolker, in her book, Writing Your Dissertation in Fifteen Minutes a Day, quotes a friend, Kenneth Skier called, “parking on the downhill slope.”

This means writing down where you are in your writing, where you think you are doing next, the issues that you are working on, etc.

I need to spend more time acting like the Weatherman character to get an inside look at his motivation and action. I did find an article on how the FBI handled a complex hostage case– far more carefully than I had imagined.  So that is helpful for creating the FBI character.

Knowing that, I have today’s work prepared and I am less likely to waste time or worse, get a case of writer’s block.
