For #feedyourwritingfriday, a suggestion from Lydia Davis to build quiet time onto the end of your writing session so your brain can continue to noodle with your ideas and you’ll be available to catch anything comes forth.
Note that for her, this time isn’t a do-nothing time—it could overlap with doing dishes or laundry or taking a walk. That’s useful for those of us who manage a household and family in addition to a writing practice!
This was brought to my attention by novelist and professor Andrew Porter on Twitter. Thanks, Andrew!
