I like to write at the computer. To let my fingers fly over the keys and see the words instantly appear on the screen. To be able to change something by simply hitting that backspace key. But sometimes the most uninspiring view is the computer screen!
When that happens, it's time for a change of scenery. I curl up someplace cozy with my 50-cent "composition notebook" and write the old-fashioned way. There is something about putting an actual pen to paper that slows me down, lets me take it easy. I can almost always ease back into my writing groove that way. Plus, there's something truly satisfying about being able to scratch over the wrong word (or awful paragraph) or doodle in the margins as I contemplate the next line.
Try it the next time you feel stuck!
