Re: Gettin’ Jammed Up…



So the other day, I was all jammed up. Hit a wall right in the middle of Chapter 4 and that bastard cursor just kept blinking at me as if to say, “Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. You ain’t got nothin’, pal. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha…”

Now, my time for writing must be burgled from my life like so many diamond necklaces. So when I actually have the time, blocking up just ain’t an option. So here are some things that I do OTHER than write (journaling usually irons out out the wrinkles, but not always), which have worked:

-Jam out on the bass or drums;

-Sing Karaoke;

-Spank the monkey–embarrassing to admit, but it works reliably well. Oh! Like you don’t do that;

-Walk in the woods and smoke a pipe (tobacco) with my dog Brody (no, wise-apple, he doesn’t smoke. He quit months ago!);

-Fidget with the various junk on my desk (e.g. old typewriter, LOTR miniature helmets, old coins, spinning toy); and

-Open up a can o’ whoop a#$ on the computer at a game of chess. But far more often, get a can o’ whoop a#$ opened up on me by the computer.

Those are just some of the ones I can think of. 🙂

Would love to hear yours!
