Quote, unquote: Wanna write? Get a deadline

"Some days, when a deadline's looming and my brain's refusing to co-operate, I'm tempted to perform some kind of psychological cleansing ceremony. More than once I've wondered whether I should prepare for the writing process by wishing my inner critic inside a nearby object – a tennis ball, say – which I could then symbolically hurl out of the window before taking a seat at my desk."
-- Guardian columnist Charlie Brooker, writing about being asked for advice on writing
