Don’t know what to do next? Brain in a funk and not really working? Then take a break. Step back from everything and give yourself a day or two, maybe more, to rest. It doesn’t all have to be done here and now. Sometimes when our brains stop working they’re flat out telling us they just need a break. And then you look at your papers again. Look and see what you have and where you are. You’d be surprised how much creativity and inspiration you can get just by taking a break and then looking at it again.
