Sometimes writing isn’t putting words on paper, it’s filling your creativity teapot.
So maybe today, instead of sitting down to write, you could create something worth writing about—and as it’s Random Acts of Kindness Day maybe go out and do a random kind thing for someone.
Like, maybe, take your neighbour’s bin in for them—and maybe have a conversation you wouldn’t have otherwise had.
Or offer your parking ticket to a stranger (I did that just last week and it felt nice).
Or pay for someone’s shopping if they’re in a pickle.
Or help someone carry heavy bags or a pushchair up a flight of stairs.
So many little things that could spark a new friendship, or simply a tiny story to write about.
