ON YOUR FEET! The benefits of exercise.
I started off on my usual route, munching an apple and brooding over a rejection, but when I threw away the core for the lizards to find I gave myself a severe scold and forced the grey cells onto my latest project - re-writing my novel Helter-Skelter.
I had been reading one chapter yesterday afternoon and as I began thinking about that this morning it suddenly dawned on me that it contained a serious error in chronology. After numerous readings this is the first time it has occurred to me, which just goes to show that you can skim over your own mistakes far too easily - but even my daughter, who reads everything I write, hadn't noticed.
So I stopped at a cafe, ordered a coffee, and scribbled some notes before I could forget my flash of insight. I go for a walk most mornings - perhaps I should do so more often, and for longer.
