The Week’s Tweets on how to dodge subconscious blocks and WRITE THE STORY

chipmunk_creativecommons WTS=Write the Story!

WTS 33: Does mood affect creativity? Research suggests recovery from depression, not depression, inspires creativity. http://bit.ly/8FkBQQ

WTS 34: More on mood/creativity relationship: One study shows both positive and negative moods spark creativity http://bit.ly/93aW3k

In other words:happy or sad people more creative, relaxed or angry people less so. And playing a video game can spark creativity

...and for another take on creativity and mood, see http://bit.ly/6GKI0p, which claims a sad writer is a careful writer.

WTS 35: Feeling stuck? Take a long walk, with pen and paper or a voice recorder for when inspiration strikes.

WTS 36: Create an inspirational playlist. What music does your character like? What music reflects your character’s mood?

WTS 37: Play a “background sounds” CD of waves, birds, a crackling fire, etc., to help create the right mood for writing a particular scene.

I would definitely agree with this. When I'm REALLY pissed off, I can open up a document and be REALLY mean to one of my villains. :-D Then I feel a tad better.
