Some writers leave their work mid-sentence, so that when they return the next day, they can easily pick up where they left. Although I’ve never tried it, I can warmly recommend making things easier for yourself by preparing.
When I leave the studio, I often lay out whatever I’m going to be working on the following day. It helps to put my mind at ease, knowing how far I’ve come, and it’s a huge help when I sit down at my desk the next morning. Instead of spending the first half hour trying to remember what the hell your were doing, you can just dig right in. I usually pick something easy, like marking up a new page or the transfer of a sketch on the lightbox. I’m no good at mornings, so it has to be as easy as filling in the blanks.
And instead of beating myself up for procrastinating and drinking coffee, I can
pad pat myself on the back for having gotten started right away.
