Before starting a new story,
I usually take one or two days
to do…
nothing.
I claim I use this for plotting
because,
by the end of the second day,
I often have a plot.
In the quiet spaces,
I find creative solutions.

As Kevin Cashman,
author of
The Pause Principle,
shares in the July/August
The Costco Connection

“Step back
from the hurried, hectic pace,
the onslaught of information.
Go for a walk or run.
Sit by the river.
Take a power nap,
meditate
or listen to relaxing music.
New ideas and innovations emerge
in the spaces
between the doing.”

If you need new ideas,
take some time off.
It sounds counter intuitive
but it often works.
