Last night as I was working hard on revisions, things started to blur, fade in and out, and become altogether confusing. So what do I do when I have “writer’s block?”

  • wash dishes
  • go running
  • fold laundry
  • Any task that takes more physical work than brain power

I do not stare at my computer to remove the block.

Tonight I did the dishes, and in less than five minutes, Poof! things suddenly became clear and the solution to my problem sprung into my head. I love it when that happens. My dish scrubber is my magic idea wand.

  1. You’re right. Staring at the computer screen does nothing to help the situation.
