I go and do something else for a while - read, see a movie, go for a walk. A long walk is a really good way to clear the cobwebs.

My motto: you can fix everything in the next draft.(less)
Mason Cross Hey Mary! I would LOVE to do a US tour sometime - I will definitely keep you posted if there are any plans

Mason Cross, The Killing Season

“The most important quality in my line of work is adaptability. Control what you can, but don't expect to control everything. Make plans, but don't be surprised when you have to tear them up and start from scratch. Don't waste time on wishing things were different, deal with them as they are. pg 235”
