There’s a lot to be said about play. It relaxes the brain and personally I’ve found that the less stressed I am, the more creative ideas I have. When I take my laptop or notebook to work outside in the garden, I come up with the most incredible stories and my writing resonates the calm that I feel.
I’ve said before, do a crossword or a sudoku every morning. But how about looking up different word games to play whenever you need a bit of a break from your writing. There’s so many to choose from. Do a Google search and you’ll see.
