It’s late night rush to get to four posts. Today I stayed away from social media for the most part. Last night Debbie Reynolds passed and Twitter was emotionally draining. I’m not sure why I think staying away from social media turned off the generative part of my brain but I worked it on the new project this morning for a good hour. The reactive part of my brain shut down. I couldn’t think. I didn’t want to talk about how I was feeling, what I was thinking. I distracted myself with good company. And distracting oneself doesn’t lead to much generative thought. Or, at least, it shouldn’t. The goal should be enjoying the distraction.
