Priming the Pump

When I step away from writing for a while due to illness or work or whatever, I force myself to write something. Anything. I try my best to not get too down on myself about what or how I write that something.  I write to Prime the Pump.  Sure enough, once primed, I start to get eager to write, I start to narrate posts in my head on my way home. The tap begins to drip.
