sbc seeks jbp

breaking writer's block = breaking life blocks?

Read today from one of NPR's NaNoWriMo author interviews, on breaking writer's block:
"One thing I like to do is crack open the dictionary, find a word I hadn't heard of before and write a poem around it. Sometimes the poems are silly, sometimes they're painful, but they always get me excited about writing again. I'm also partial to choosing an object -- preferably edible, ideally a strawberry -- and taking time to explore it slowly, mindfully, using all of my senses."

This always calms me down, wakes me up, and blasts my writing right back open.
