I have just decided enough was enough and it was about time that I reminded myself what my desk actually looks like so decided to plough through the forest of paperwork thrown all over it and file (in the bin) or bin everything. While doing this I remembered a picture on Will Self’s website which is pretty similar to what I look at most days.
Why was I on Will’s site? Well I saw this quote from him in The Independent last week on writers block and thought I would print it out and keep it on the wall in front of me so I can show it to the next exec who complains about having to do so much writing.
“I have never experienced writer’s block. Writing is a muscular action and, like any other, all you need to do is exercise the muscles. I don’t even think of it as writing – it’s typing.’ Will Self, novelist and columnist. Well said.
