It started with a book on writing. One of the suggestions to broaden your writing horizons was to take a week and do something you've never done before. Starting tomorrow, I'm going to do just that. Each day after work, I'm going to go to a place I haven't been before, bring a notebook and actually observe, and maybe even chat with people to try something new.
I'll admit this. I've been in more than a writing rut, and with my current schedule, nothing has helped.
It's time to work on something I can change. Seriously!
