If I've been pushing it pretty hard at the keyboard, I try to take a break and do something fun. Writers write about life...and if all I'm doing is sitting in front of the computer...I don't have much to say. On the other hand if I just can't seem to settle down to write I often just start writing something...even if it's just that I can't write at the moment. After a bit of that...the words usually start flowing onto the page.(less)
