So. Writing. Hard, isn't it?
I find it impossible to write for more than an hour at a time. Sometimes, if I'm REALLY pumped up, I go on for longer stretches. But this is rare, folks. Like, is-that-a-Yeti-with-a-chimichanga? rare. My creative juices sound the alarm and slam those breaks like nobody's business. I feel exhausted and bored.
Which is why I have solo dance parties.
I put on songs that drive me to brink of dancing madness, then run headfirst to said madness.
Note: I am a terrible dancer. But I do it anyway.
It's my excuse to have fun and laugh at my ineptitude for a few minutes. It's also a great way to recharge those creative juices. Dance parties make me happy. Therefore, after the dance party is over, I will still be happy. This helps me get back to writing with a smile on my face and, hopefully, a believable way to end that pesky scene or chapter.
Just don't ask me to record myself dancing. You don't deserve that kind of torture.
How do you recharge those creative juices after a writing session? Do you throw solo dance parties, too? Or do you prefer something less embarrassing?
