Sitting down with the intent to write is creative suicide.  Bringing inspiration from somewhere or sometime else in your life is the key to sitting down and writing.  Throughout the day, be imagining solutions.  In your car, when that traffic threatens to give you a coronary, breathe.  Use visualization to see solutions.  The world needs and is drawn to creative thinkers.  Be one.

When a problem comes up in life at work or home, don’t curse it.  Instead, think about a creative way to solve it.  Writing is not the only thing that will benefit from doing this.  Every aspect of your life will improve as you lean into creative solutions.  If you’ve damages your online reputation my immoral traffic schemes, you can go legit again just like an acne damaged person can use acne scars treatment.
