My thoughts can't seem to get wrapped around writing today. Instead, my head is filled to capacity with thoughts of not only our time in Wisconsin with Jill and the grandkids but also of putting the house in order and putting away all the clothes and suitcases. Now that most of it is finished, I'm having trouble switching gears. I can't seem to get into my story because of all that's playing out on the screen of my mind.
Usually all I need to do is to clear my writing space of clutter and sit down and turn on the computer.
Not today. I've done all that and it isn't working. It seems I must clear my head as well.
How do you clear your head for writing when you've been away for a week or so? What works for you? Can you just sit down and start tapping out words on the computer? Or do you have to fix a cup of tea? Put on a cozy sweater? Light a candle or two? Put on the coffee pot?
What signals your move toward the creative world?
Nothing has worked for me today. Instead, I'm having an early night.
I've learned that a well rested writer writes much better than one that has gone with too little sleep.
Look forward to hearing your tips! Thanks!
