Boredom and loneliness can create creativity.
Boredom and loneliness can stop creativity.
The following tips might just help you find the right balance and are free!
Have An Accountability Partner Encourage one another and stop the feeling of isolation. I belong to a writer's group where we hold each other accountable to ATLEAST 10 minutes of writing every day.
In-Home Exercise Make "friends" with exercise instructors on DVDs and videos for companionship just to get you through the quiet day. I usually play Leslie Sansone in-home walking DVDs and can almost repeat what she will say before she says it!
Change Your Workspace Go to your local library. People AND quiet! I usually take my laptop to my kitchen for a change of scenery.
Listen To The Radio This is like listening to old friends. I like to listen to radio stations that are from near my hometown, such as WDVE and 3WS.
Watch An Inspiring Video On YouTube These are like a free education. I like to watch gift basket making videos as a stress-breaker. I know gift baskets have nothing to do with writing, but it does spark creativity.
This is my short but sweet take on the balancing act of being a work at home writer.
