Track - getting back on

Every writer has time away. The reasons are many, the getting back in to the swing of writing is single and universal. Make sure you are healthy, fit, rested and able to start. False starts aren't helpful and you'll be back to peg one. Then find a routine, a new one or an old trusted one. Whichever you choose go for and stick to it.
