"Many times we will get more ideas and better ideas in two hours of creative loafing than in eight hours at a desk."

American Writer
1900 - 1995

Sometimes our best ideas arrive unannounced when we are relaxed and playing.  When you experience writer's block, escape from your office to walk in the woods, or to fly a kite, or to swing in the sunshine, or to swim in the pool, or to build sand castles.  Creativity cannot be forced.  It is best that you coax it to come out and play.  Your muse likes to surprise you and will offer you a drink when you least expect it.  Be ready when the moment arrives so the ideas don't vanish into the sunset.

What are you doing to encourage your creativity?  Do you meditate?  Or watch a sunrise?  Or visit a museum?  Or talk to a stranger?  What are you doing to navigate your way out of your comfort zone?  How are your breaking out of the routine?
