A tip for staving off writer's blockOpen an encyclopedia to a random page, and read an entry. You might get one good detail (the sacred 'ibis' was revered in ancient Egypt) or a whole line of exploration (St. Dunstan's, a British organization that cares for those blinded in war, was founded by a blind newspaper owner) to shake you out of your stupor. (Pocket Muse by Monica Wood)
Actually works wonderfully well - I know!
Awesome tip. I'm going to remember this.ReplyDelete
