Writers' block

I've been working on a book with a friend of mine for about 8 months now and it never ceases to amaze me how inspiration insists on striking at the worst possible time. My best ideas have arrived in the middle of meetings, or when a really urgent work-related deadline is looming, or while I'm wedged into someone's armpit on the train - in short, anywhere where I can't possibly sit down with a pen and paper and scribble a note or drum out a quick email. On the upside, I think my memory has improved from the necessity of hanging onto ideas until I can write things down!

I can also console myself with the idea of writing a really quick book one weekend and publishing it on http://www.lulu.com/uk - I may only earn a fiver from it, but when someone decides they want to read about what happens when a man who should have died while taking part in a time-travelling experiment... well, you'll just have to keep an eye out for it. Unfortunately the joint project book is going to have to go through conventional channels, because we actually want to earn money from it...

I'm sure anyone who wants to have their blog in book form for posterity would enjoy Lulu though - have a look and let your imagination carry you away with dreams of published success - I have!
