Yes, I have masterfully come up with yet another delaying tactic. I reckon I'm a pretty great example of how not to write a novel. Future generations of budding novelists can look back at me and say "Well, that clearly is not the way to get things done."
But I'm having fun with it and that's important for me going into this. The actual writing of sentences is usually a pretty dark process for me, full of a lot of self-hatred and doubt in my ability.
Besides writing song lyrics is totally fun.
