Finding Productivity by Creating A Void – Daily Quote

Sometimes words don’t come. We get tired, and we block the free flow of words. The result is frustrating, and it can grow into a debilitating problem. Joni has the right idea. The best remedy is to change the flow. Change your movements, do something different, push writing from your mind. My answer is allowing my hands the freedom to engage in activities they know well.  It allows my brain to rest. Completing chores around the house, working out, crocheting a scarf or a blanket or using my sewing machine creates needed space.

Rote activities shift my brain into neutral, it clears a space, leaving a void.  The universe despises voids. Voids require filling. That is when inspiration strikes and I am soon back at my keyboard, filling blank pages with another story.

What activities help you clear the way for your story?

  1. Thank you Jo this is such great advice. So many times I’ve found myself in a tangle with a piece of writing, trying to force it like a ‘proper’ writer. It’s a sign that my work, and myself, need some space from one another, and sometimes the tangle magically works itself out. best regards Jude
