My Name Is Not Bob: The Second Most Important Thing a Writer Can Do: 5 Ways to Experiment as a Writer
Here, "Not Bob" says the same thing I've said again and again when you want to get out of a plateau: break up your routine and do something different. "Not Bob" has some specific exercises a writer can take, which might give you an idea on how you, too, can get out of a rut, any rut, but specifically yours, and it need not be about dieting and foods.
Your love life, your daily routines, anything we do that we do over and over - while making us efficient, can also come close to boring us to tears and can destroy the very things we love. We begin to hate those things: picking up the toys, washing the dishes, making food, picking a menu, our spouses, driving to and from work, our love life (or lack thereof), our life.
Whenever we get in a rut, it's time to shake things up in a way that makes us creative and loving life again. It's that loving life feeling that makes it possible to push away from the table, to laugh when someone - we won't say who - says hurtful things, and to make things happen.
So, check out "Not Bob" and see if he has some idea in there that might spark a little sum-sumthin' for you.
