It's well known that there are occasions when some writers will do almost anything to avoid getting on with the work in progress. Just back from holiday, instead of getting down to some writing I have done the following: phoned everyone I can think of, ridden the horse, phoned everyone again, checked emails umpteen times, fainted (not planned, but it gave me the chance to Google the condition, since my doctor son's helpful contribution was to laugh and say I'd had a "funny turn"), write silly things on my website (I've only just learned to administer it myself, and get carried away), wonder again who "Mags" is (and much look forward to her introducing herself)...and write this. What do others of you/us do in this situation, or is everyone else so industrious that the idea of not writing is quite inconceivable? Please tell me I'm not alone.
