Writing quick tip 7/12/13

This week’s quick tip is simple:

1) Stand up. Walk away from your desk.

2) Connect. Find something that inspires you or re-energizes you – music, art, nature, exercise, pets, people – and devote some quality time to that thing/activity/person.

I realized this week, after a happy hour with some amazing former colleagues and a separate coffee meeting with a former boss, that being around other people and sharing conversation is a great source of inspiration for me. It gets my brain working in a different way, and it helps re-route my train of thought.

If I have been sitting at my desk for too long, my thinking and creativity become stifled. Breaking the routine and reconnecting help me reclaim the mental energy I need to write.
