I have several strategies for writer's block.
1. I can either write today, or clean the bathrooms.
2. I identify the scene or dialogue that has me stumped. Then I stick a small notebook in my pocket and take a walk. I can't go home until I have resolved the issue.
3. I take a long drive, and I either turn off the radio, or tune XM to the spa station so I'm not distracted by the music.
4. I bribe myself with candy or cookies.(less)

You want me to pee in that?

I spent most of the month of May in Japan, traveling from Tokyo to Kyoto, Hiroshima, Osaka, and points in between. We rode on trains, buses, street cars, and boats. We saw villages, and temples, and huge shopping centers. But the most shocking discovery I made? http://mrcornelius.com/2013/06/05/pee ##
