I try to distract myself by doing something I love which usually involves nature. I live in Florida and love to go to the beach. That's when the best inspiration comes... when you are relaxing and chilling and not pushing for an answer. (less)

I also love that it's a career that I've been able to do at home. I was lucky to have the best of both worlds as I was raising my kids -- able to work from home, doing my writing and freelance work, and still being there when they got home from school. Now they're off to college but I still cherish the peace and ease of writing at home. Now my two dogs and the cat keep me company. (less)
