Finding the time Inexperienced authors often develop the idea that it is only possible to write if they have a decent chunk of time in which to do so. Some even believe that writing is possible only when they feel inspired. Taken together, these mythical beliefs form the most common excuse for academic inactivity. They are mythical because it is possible to be a productive author even if time is short; and it is possible to write in the absence of inspiration, which rarely comes to most of us at convenient moments.

Because they are usually working to very short deadlines or within the time constraints of a live broadcast, journalists need simple, instant answers to questions that academics would not ask. David still remembers the confusion on the face of a very experienced journalist when he asked on live radio whether he could summarize his work (ten years of it) in a sentence and David said he could not.

Some authors are obsessional about having to be in a particular place before they can even think of writing, whereas others can write almost anywhere provided they have a few minutes to spare.
