I felt very unproductive this morning. I didn't get much done. After baby finally went down for a nap, I knew I wanted to write, but I couldn't get into it. I didn't have a scene in mind to work on. I do so much better when I've had a scene running through my head. Then, I can sit down and just write.
So, I decided I should mop my kitchen floor. It really needed it. Guess what? Mopping helped. As I mopped the kitchen floor, I tried to get a scene in my mind to work on. It was just long enough to help me figure out what I wanted to work on next. Now, I have a clean kitchen floor and a scene to work on.
Cleaning can help. It's not something I have to concentrate on, so my mind is free to work on writing. So, it's killing 2 birds with one stone ( I hate that saying, but I couldn't think of a better way to say it) You clean the floor and you scour your brain for a scene.
