I have heard that while we sleep, our brains are still busy—problem-solving… working things out… trying to make sense of things.
So at the end of my writing day, when I failed to come up with a page-turner final sentence to my chapter, I decided to put it to the test.
I crawled into bed, reviewing what I had just written in my mind. I turned out the light and told my brain to take the night shift.
I woke the next morning, excited about the possibilities of what my brain had come up with. I reread yesterday’s work from start to finish. That’s when the thoughts started pouring in.
I kid you not.
When ideas just won’t come, give your body a rest, while allowing your brain time to work things out.
See you in the morning!
