Man I love brainless work! I've been fretting about the ending of Outlaw in Petticoats. It seemed too short, something was missing, and it was eating at me.
Last night while raking hay, staring at the rows and rows of hay fluffed and yet to be fluffed, driving back and forth, my mind wandered and Bam! I realized I had two loose ends that needed tied up, and a scene near the end (lengthening and strengthening) would take care of those and thanks to my CP I added a better/longer ending to make the story not seem like someone pressed the shut off button!
So Whoop! Whoop! to mindless, repetitive work!
What kind of mindless work helps spark your creative thoughts?
