If you are living on beans and cups of tea it might be a good idea to give it some thought.

If your only solid food is beans forget writing a book and change your diet. For the sake of those around you;-)

JK used to write while she sat in a Cafe. She was in the cafe to keep warm.

The owners of her favourite cafe, Nicolson's, would let her stay all day - Jessica sleeping at her side - as she wrote out the stories in longhand, having ordered only a glass of water and an espresso.

I've started many books, but rarely manage to keep up the momentum beyond about page 10.

The problem I always have is character names, I can devise a fantastic (in my mind) plot, brilliant locations and characters, but I always fail miserably with character names.

At the same time I have trouble remembering names, I remember faces, and who the person is, but I'm stumped when it comes to their name...

Her habit of devising fantasy stories when she should have been working led to her being sacked more than once.

I was usually scribbling bits of my latest stories in the margins of the pad or thinking up names for my characters


Best keep trying!
