It was my husband who reminded me how I used to handle writing blocks. No, he is not a writer. He is a steel detailer. He draws the details of an architectural drawing so that the fabricator knows how to make it and the contractor can erect it.
He mentioned that he has learned that when he is working out how do something on a drawing, he takes a walk. It helps.
I used to do this all the time with my writing, so I knew just what he meant. Sometimes part of the creative act can’t just be put on paper right away. You need to work it out. Or as you may know, sometimes our brains work on our work in progress when we are no where near it,either physically or mentally.
