Fleur made a great observation this morning. She said that just sitting and pondering is good for the soul.
I think that as a society we tend to downplay the benefits of sitting around thinking. We have to go go go, do do do. Even our kids are scheduled every minute of every day.
As writers, we often fall into this same trap. "I must write X words a day." Not that it can't be helpful to have a goal. Sometimes we do need to just get the words out. But where do they come from?
So, my goal for June is to allow myself some pondering time every day. Maybe instead of running errands every lunch hour, I'll go over to the park and sit.
