Yesterday I spent a couple of hours drawing, for the first time in too long, as a respite from struggling with problems in the plot of a new story I've been developing. Then I went to bed. I woke up at around 2:30 a.m., and had so many new ideas for the story that I had to get up and write notes. This morning I'm happy to report that the notes are coherent, and the plot is nearly solved. Drawing: always a good idea!
