Time out

There will be times when things aren't going well and it's a pig of job to even get started. Clearing out the fridge/freezer/garage/kitchen cupboards/loft/basement suddenly take on a surprising importance. This displacement activity needs to be kept in check or valuable writing time will be frittered away.
