Readers and writers, here are my top 10
1) Think about/mock up the coverBecause having an idea of how your cover might look always helps to get you in the mood for writing, obviously. It's motivation. Usually goes something like this:
7pm: Lucy enters Stockphotolandia
2:38am: lkjlijgljfkjekfjhgpppphhh...sulk...stinging eyes...zzz
2) Make graphicsYou know how it goes: write an awesome line. Feel smug, edit a few syllables out. Then edit them back in. And then remember you saved the PERFECT stock photo for THIS particular line. Make graphic. Spend at least twenty six minutes getting the text placement right.
Ten minutes later: sulk because you haven't announced the book release yet, so can't show anyone the graphic. Instant gratification: DENIED.
