I got out of the habit of daily writing and creating. I've been too busy traveling! But I decided to start a journal and found that my mind kept drifting off, I was unable to focus to write.
I turned to an experienced author friend, Nancy Hendrickson, for advice. She advised me to try different mediums - poetry, say, which was completely new to me - and to try using photographs as inspiration.
My poetry turned into song lyrics and I've spent the last few weeks studying how to do songwriting, which is fun.
So I would say that was excellent advice, to try something completely different.
I did notice, as well, that my attention and focus is better when I am eating really well. For me, that means avoiding anything in a packet, really. I am very intolerant to MSG and it's hidden in alsorts of things. As long as I stick to fruits, vegetables, nuts/seeds, and wholegrains/pulses, I'm OK. But if I eat packet foods, oh my goodness, I get depressed, lethargic, and moody - with zero concentration.
I do know other authors who clean up their diets and lifestyles if writer's block hits so I'm not the only one!(less)

New Electronic Shorthand book coming soon

The Electronic Shorthand book came out in 2016 and, since then, people have been asking for a dictionary of abbreviations. I resisted – for five years! – because the system is based very much on the sound of words, so that depends on a person’s accent and way of speaking. However, a few encounters with …
