Short answer: I do something totally unrelated to writing, such as taking a walk or coloring (yes, coloring!) for 15 minutes. Meditation also helps. It frees up my brain so I can get back into the creative realm and work my magic. (less)
Sheyna Galyan Very short commute to work. And I get paid to talk to my imaginary friends.

Nine years ago today, my mother was dying. It was sad, and painful, and beautiful.
Let me explain.
The day before Thanksgiving in 2008, my mom was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer. She was given six months to live. One week later, I pulled my kids—then seven and five—out of school and the three of us drove from Minnesota to California so we could spend some time with my mom.... Read more of this blog post »

N.H. Kleinbaum
“And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”
N.H. Kleinbaum

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!”
William Hutchison Murray
