I am no supporter of the whole 'writer's block' idea but I do suffer from extreme laziness, intermittent head-aches, a six-day-a-week job and other excuses. What do you guys do to get that writing done?

Getting contracted in advance seems to help in a pinch but less drastic methods would be nice.

Tell my aunt to email my ex boyfriend telling him I love him, unless I deliver a chapter a week.

Boy, that sounds even more drastic!

It worked, I once did 50k words in a month after sending her his email address and an email to forward to him - the terror got my novel finished.

Currently its the ebook novellas that are bringing in my money--so the more mainstream novels havene't been touched in a while.

I don't have a printer so i pretty much only look at the stories on the sofa the the big old desktop sitting ona cardboard box. need to work on the ergonomics of that.

I bet i would edit better if I could print out.
