Little bits of two favorites to stave off the writer's block. The knitting, in particular, is a godsend - there's something about doing something dexterous, tactile ... with my hands ... that unsticks the brain and helps me through procrastination like no other. It's like an ounce of preventative productive procrastination, instead a pound of trolling the internet. The chocolate, too, is ensuring that I have adequate padding for the snow that has recently dusted our streets. Except now I think I'm addicted to the chocolate.
