The writing has not been going well this week. I tried to handle my short-circuiting brain by barricading myself in my room, saying, “You can’t do anything fun until your characters do something interesting.”
I ended up with two wasted days, and a lot of wasted paper.
Today I said, “Well, heck, I’m doing awful work anyway, might as well be doing it somewhere nice.”
So I took my notebook down to the lake. (A quick, two-block walk from my house, lucky, lucky me!)Guess what? I got three pages of halfway decent material, because I decided to take my characters out on a lake as well. Sometimes all it takes to get your brain functioning again is a change of scene.
Have you invisible Blogland people ever benefited from a change of scene? I want to hear your story!
