Happy New Year!
Our first tip is from the author, Alison MacLeod:
When you’re stuck with a chapter or a story – after you’ve done all the work you can do – put it aside for a few days, but spend ten minutes, eyes closed, turning it over in your mind before you sleep and then ten minutes, eyes closed still, immediately after you wake up.
Alison MacLeod is the author of the novel The Changeling, The Wave Theory of Angels and Fifteen Modern Tales of Attraction. She is currently working on a new novel and lives in Brighton.
