When I am waiting for my writing brain to come back online, I use the time to get projects done that I like doing - using creativity but in a different way than writing. Last week, I repainted my bathroom and this week I plan on doing some refinishing of some old wood lamps that I found. I have been looking around in antique stores for an unusual shade for each of them but have not been successful yet. I am hoping to find something glass, maybe green or blue - but that is just an idea. I am also working on a surprise for my daughter's birthday - but I cannot write about that yet since she might read this blog!
Now I realize that I may not be normal. When I look at sites like Grammar Girl, she recommends totally different ways of attacking the dreaded writer's block, most of which involve more writing.
I guess my point for this post is to to encourage you to stay creative when you feel that the words are not flowing. You will still have fun and the writing will be more enjoyable when you get back to it.
Feel free to comment if you have a different method of getting the words flowing again.
