I read somewhere that an author should print out their work instead of always working on it on a computer. There is something about changing the way you look at the story that opens up one's creativity. I did it with "Down the Rabbit Hole," and found it to be extremely helpful. So, at 140 pages into "Voicemails From My Sister," I decided it was time to print it out as well. Holding the manuscript opened up my brain. I was able to see new things. I remembered stories I didn't think of while sitting at my desk. I had epiphanies as to how to construct the narrative. I am now back in the flow. I highly recommend this strategy for writers.
