Second, I think about my writing project off and on while I'm doing other things. I ask myself, "What's going on that hinders me?"
Third, I believe in letting the unconscious work. This is probably the most practical thing I do. I focus on other things. Often I go to sleep and the answer pops up early the next morning. I don't always find the answer to what has been amiss, but I'm ready to write.
I give my inner wisdom an opportunity to help me.
