Joseph Heller, author of the classic book, Catch-22, once said this, "I think of writing as a private enterprise … since so much comes from rumination … I have to be alone. A bus is good. Or walking the dog. Brushing my teeth is marvelous – it was especially so for Catch-22."

He went on to say, “Often when I am very tired, just before going to bed, while washing my face and brushing my teeth, my mind gets very clear … and produces a line for the next day's work, or some idea way ahead. I don't get my best ideas while actually writing."

The truth is, many writers get their best ideas when they’re doing something other than writing. How about you?

Write a few paragraphs about when YOU generate your best ideas. In the shower? In the garden? While you’re running? Make this the week during which you get really clear and confident about how YOU create your strongest ideas.

This will empower you to be confident and certain about who YOU are as a writer.

Now, get out there and make it happen.
