Go Outside

Kate Hart
When I got back into writing and starting talking about it on this blog, I wasn't sure if I should keep the other categories-- crafts and sewing and playing in the dirt. But agent Rachelle Gardner says:
"...spend time everyday in activities that are productive, that keep you moving physically, but don't engage your brain."
And Stephen King says:
"It starts with this: put your desk in the corner, and every time you sit down to write, remind yourself why it isn't in the middle of the room. Life isn't a support-system for art. It's the other way around."

I say: Done. And my boys say: Woo hoo!


  1. Kate, your kids are adorable! My version of getting out is to take the long way home from writing at Starbucks. Seeing the Presidio and the Golden Gate bridge makes me feel small and awed again.
