Windy walks and bubble baths
I’m sure you’ll know what I mean when I say that some days your writing just seems to flow effortlessly and before you know it you’ve reached that goal of 1000 words. On other days, holding a tarantula in your hand for ten minutes (or a snake, rat, cockroach etc – depending on your phobia) can seem easier than writing the minimum of words.
If, after torturing yourself for a short time, it still isn’t coming together, go for a walk or take a bath. It’s amazing the difference a change of scene and a clearing of the mind can make. After a blast of fresh air or soothing suds of a bath, everything suddenly seems to come together. If it still doesn’t – tomorrow’s another day.
