Day 23, Wednesday, March 23rd


Bread ... books ... one nourishes the body, the other nourishes the soul, but they are similar.

If you’ve ever kneaded bread (by hand) you know it’s hard work!  Tiring work You have to work it, turn it, stretch it, pound it. Without that kind of rough treatment, the bread just doesn't turn out well.

You knead it, shape it, let it rise. Then pound it all down and start all over! Knead some more, shape, and add some heat. Surprisingly, it will rise even more than the first time around. 

But isn't that a little like the best writing?

Creativity Kick-Starter
What if Johnny fell in love with Sarah?
Holy Cow, that's it!
I know what you’re saying. You’re saying, “Uh PJ, I thought we already talked about cleaning and agreed that we didn’t really need to do that. Are you some kind of neat freak? What’s wrong with you?”

And I say to you, “Geez, take a chill pill and let me explain.” Here’s why cleaning is good for your creative spark. It gives you plenty of time to daydream and we’ve established that daydreaming is a good thing. And by now you’re carrying a notebook and pen with you everywhere you go so you can write down all those brilliant ideas that come to you when you’re doing the dishes, dusting or vacuuming.

Look, even if you don’t have any million dollar ideas at least the house will get clean.

Let's get the mojo going. 
Set your timer for 15 minutes 
and write fast & furious.

Ready. Set. Go!

Productivity Pointers

Nobody ever died because they couldn't get
online. Well, except for those people who
wanted to look up antidotes for venomous
snake bites.
The internet is an awesome thing … unless you’re trying to write. Then it’s like the little devil from the cartoons just sitting on your shoulder pushing you to do bad things. Things like, go on Facebook again, tweet for the sixth time in an hour, or check your sales on Amazon every ten minutes.

Sometimes you’ve just got to close down your internet and concentrate only on your wip. Which I’m totally going to do after I spend a little time on Pinterest.
