Our early human ancestors were rovers. They walked for miles and miles, following game animals, picking berries and – more generally – scouring the Earth for sustenance. They did not sit at that same desk, looking at that same ugly desk lamp and that same pointless container full of ballpoint pens that can no longer write.
Instead, early homo sapiens were encountering new views and vistas all the time, with their brains constantly reacting to the colors and details of their surroundings.
Today, roving for writer’s block can be as simple as transporting yourself and your laptop to a park bench or even to a different corner of the office/room. The point is to stimulate your brain with new surroundings when you feel writer’s block setting in.
