here comes the rain again…

life, rain, writing

Writer’s block is one of the most frustrating things. Such a strange phenomenon when you really think about it. What I’ve noticed though, is that whenever it’s raining my block disappears. Almost as if the block was water-soluble.

Perhaps it’s something about the sound of the rain, or being close to water that I find so relaxing. Often I feel like the world slows down just a little when it rains, just enough to notice the water falling from the sky and saturating the earth below. With the world slowed down I can focus on my computer screen and the words I’m trying to say.

Does the rain help you too? What else do you find works to remove writer’s block?
