Automatic writing is well and good if the muse has flown, but I find it a bit of a waste of valuable writing time if I'm in the thick of a project and not sure where I'm going next. Today my character was running away from her Irish midlands home, to London. But I don't know London, at least, not what it's like to live there. And the Ladies' Changing Area did nothing to solve that problem. But walking there down the Bull Wall, and hanging out on the steps wondering if I'd ever get brave enough to actually change, and swim there, did clear the head. And I think my character will live in a squat which she'll reach via concrete steps smelling strongly of urine...
