Sprained muse

What do you take for that? For sprained ankles I always used to alternate hot and cold packs after rubbing in a good liniment. But sprained imagination ... I really have no idea. All I know is I've been using too many nouns lately and paragraphs as well. I'm completely off my sense of linebreak.

Help! Ideas for rapid recovery?


  1. Here's an idea. Try writing a 5-10 minute play. Two characters. Dialog is always a good way to alternate hot and cold packs to a sprained imagination. AND it allows you to talk to yourself without your relatives thinking it's absolute proof of their belief that you're nuts.


  2. I love this idea! As I write longer plays, this will seem a comfy way back into the process. My relatives, sadly, already have the inside story on my mental state, which I unwisely shared with them several decades back.
