Maybe take a walk, maybe read with a cup of tea or a glass of iced coffee. Try a short story or a blog post if the novel is where I'm stymied. But mostly, I work to forgive myself for being human and then try hard to get my butt in my chair and my brain back to work. (less)

“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”
Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

Steve Jobs
“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
Steve Jobs

Caroline Knapp
“The dog’s agenda is simple, fathomable, overt: I want. “I want to go out, come in, eat something, lie here, play with that, kiss you. There are no ulterior motives with a dog, no mind games, no second-guessing, no complicated negotiations or bargains, and no guilt trips or grudges if a request is denied.”
Caroline Knapp
