Vibrant shades of amber grace the leaves on the trees outside my window. The picturesque view could tantalize anyone into a daydream.
Daydreaming can be counterproductive at times, but can also foster creativity. When I feel a bout of writer’s block rearing its ugly head, I’ve found that letting my mind relax into a daydream is a great jolt out of it. You’d be surprised at what your subconscious mind can come up with.
Richard Rhodes was a visiting author during my M.F.A. summer residency in 2007. He proclaimed that the only cure for writer’s block was to, “Place your ass in the chair.” More often than not, that works.
How about you? What do you do to cure your writer’s block?
