When I get stuck


“If you get stuck, get away from your desk. Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to ­music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don’t just stick there scowling at the problem. But don’t make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people’s words will pour in where your lost words should be. Open a gap for them, create a space. Be patient.”
― Hilary Mantel

Last week I got stuck while working on a paper I was writing and then I came across that quote by Mantel. So I went to the park and saw this swan swimming  – Like magic, the writers block suddenly disappeared.
