The hour glass gets me moving. Only 3 minutes, but once started your brain quickly settled into it. An ink pen. My habit and luxury. It flows wonderfully. This on paper that is consumed generously – every second line and on one side only leaving ample space for amendments and additions. And coffee. This happens to be decaf, Taylor’s of Harrogate (rich and chocolatty). And it’s 7:00am – there’s less chance of a distraction – ideally I’d have a three hour run at this.
