Quote of the day: ‘Be ruthless about protecting writing days’

JK-Rowling

J K Rowling, author of the phenomenally bestselling Harry Potter series, advises writers to ‘guard the time allotted to writing as a Hungarian Horntail guards its firstborn egg.’ (For those of you that have never read the Harry Potter series, the Hungarian Horntail is a particularly ferocious and bloodthirsty dragon.) Granted, this will be an unusually – and no doubt surprisingly – short post from me :-) but I thought I’d post this quote as this is something I could really do with remembering right now, what with the sheer amount of writing work I know I have to get done.
