Does writing weigh you down at times? Maybe you're wrestling with the critic inside and you're losing. Maybe you've edited until your eyes are crossed and you fear it may be a permanent situation. Or maybe you've had deadlines breathing down your neck until you resemble the hunchback.
It may be time to recharge the creative battery. Step back from your work and give yourself permission to seek out a different outlet. Paint a picture. Make a card. Bead a necklace. Bake a pie. Color in a coloring book.
What you create doesn't matter and neither does the final project. Give yourself permission to experiment and play. Step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Touch your senses with colors, textures, smells, tastes and sounds.
When you come back to your work, you will have a fresh perspective and your sensory feast will reflect in your writing.
