Replenishing your creative well
Some of the techniques I use are to step away from the keyboard. That means unplug and unwind. Don't think about email, blogs, newsletters, mailings--none of it. Focus on doing something fun or relaxing, like watching an old, favorite movie or lounging around in your jammies all day reading someone else's books.
It doesn't seem like any of these escapisms would improve your writing, but they do. I am always amazed at how much more I accomplish when I come back to the keyboard after I've given my well a chance to replenish.
What do you do to replenish your creative well?
By the way, the last book in my Mists of Ireland series is due to hit bookstores in just two weeks. Hope you're as excited about Haunting Embrace as I am!
