Before my "new system" I would do one of 4 things:
1. take a walk outside
2. take a shower (once when stumped on a difficult chapter, I took 3 showers in one day)
3. change to a different chapter
4. walk away and attack it another day

My present system: Instead of words going from my brain to my computer,
I work the "old fashioned way" and hand write everything on a legal pad. (Either sitting outside or anywhere except my office)
Then I type it. So if writer's block hits while hand writing, I go and type. Then come back.
Works for me. (less)

Not Just for Boys

Loved this book. There’s an obvious knowledge about hockey try-outs, so any child involved with hockey will love it. AND since one of the players is a girl, it’s not a “Boys Only Club”.
Also, anyone who is nervous about starting some
