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)

Awesome, healing book

I don’t usually cry when I read books. I simply put them down as soon as I start to get emotional!

But I was too invested in this one to give up on it. It was near the end when the tears started. But they were such good ones!
