    I get a lot of marketing done when I don’t feel like writing. I think our brains demand a certain level of balance, and when we try to push one side too much, it pushes back a bit. Over time, our brains adapt, so that four hours of nonstop writing is fine–but it does take time for our minds to adapt.

    When my brain is playing the “I REALLY don’t want to be doing this” game, I work on those things that I know I have to do but normally don’t want to. I SEO my website, do a little social networking (mind you, a little, not a lot), do market and publishing research, query, or revise a different WIP. I think the trick is to always be doing something to further your writing career. The more you can accomplish when you don’t feel like writing, the more you can write when you really feel like it.
