I’ll take a shower, or go for a walk, or watch TV — just to get away from the computer. I have a favorite spot on my living room sofa, right by the window, where I like to go to to think. But other days I don't have the luxury of puttering around, because I have deadlines to meet. And on those days I try to barrel through, hoping that the block will break before I do. :)(less)
