So when we walk (even on days like this) . . .
. . . it's not because I'm some health champion. It's not just because my big dog needs to get out and move. It's not so I can eat four pounds of dark chocolate M&Ms.
It's because when I get back, I can write.
Because while I walk, I solve plot snags. I flesh out characters. I allow alternate story routes to roam my brain. I freeflow with new story ideas. I create. I even dream up book covers sometimes. Shhhhh. That's another secret. Jaye Robin Brown once called what I do "plot walking." I love that, so it's what I've officially dubbed what I do.
What about you? How and when and where do you plot walk? If you don't write, where or when do you do your best thinking?
