Learn to say No "Can you come over and help me move house? It's for a good cause! I'm gradually getting better, but I still give in and say yes more often then I should.

If you're at home writing, friends and family assume you have all the time in the world to do their chores and run errands and watch wayward children. Learn to say no.
Writing time is work time. If you don't write, you don't get paid. If you can't say no, but you know you should, have someone else say no. Sometimes I send my husband in to say no for me. He's a strong personality, whereas I am a pushover. And when I do say no, I feel guilty. Husband doesn't feel guilty.

Problem solved. If you have someone to help you do this, good for you. If you don't, learn to say no. Learn really quickly. Listen to music Music plays an immense role in my life. It has defined every moment of my existence, from the albums my dad used to play when I was a girl, to the angry lyrics I'd belt out in my room as a teenager, to the songs my husband and I fall in love with together. To me, listening to music makes any activity -- no matter how loathsome -- enjoyable.
Writing is no different. Most of the time I love writing. Sometimes I hate it. If I hate it, but I have a deadline, putting on some music can really power me up. Many authors find lyrics distracting and only listen to instrumental music while they write. Many cannot listen to music at all.

Change scenery After more than six hours slogging away at my desk I have to get out. I go for a drive with my husband, of course; I don't condone reckless driving by blind people or a walk, accompany my flatmate on the food shop, reorganise the garage, anything to avoid my desk.
A week of long writing hours and I'm frothing at the mouth to go away on the weekend, to never touch that computer again If you're anything like me, you need regular breaks away from your desk. Make sure you schedule writing-free vacations, so you always have a break to look forward to. Sometimes if I've hit a slump, moving my computer gives me a new burst of life.
Write at the kitchen table for a week and see if your writing feels different. Pack your laptop off to the nearest Starbucks and write in the corner with a steady supply of caffeine.

Every time you feel a thought or worry creep in, push it away.
Some people, myself included, find this easier to do with music playing in the background. Use soft, instrumental music. My favourite is Beethoven. You could practise yoga. I took a class once, and many of the single exercises and breathing techniques remain part of my relaxation practise. Another method of meditation is to attend church.

Inspire yourself with art If I feel stifled or my creative brain takes a holiday to Timbuktu, I refresh myself with a visit to a local art gallery, play or concert. By admiring someone else's art for a few hours, I feel inspired to return to my own. I subscribe to a free "What's On in the Arts" email newsletter in my local community, so I have a source on hand if I need creative stimulation.
Local galleries, museums and theatre often have their own mailing lists. Alternatively, if you don't want to leave the house, grab a stack of your favourite old novels or some new books you can't wait to read. Make yourself a delicious snack and settle in to some guilt-free reading. I promise by the end of the first book you'll be itching to start writing again.
