Working Through Writing Challenges One Closet at a Time

Hello All,
Sorry I haven't updated my blog in a while, but I've been busy reviewing and re-outlining my novel. The rest of my free time has been devoted to getting my house spic and span.  Not your everyday dusting and mopping mind you, but deep cleaning. I re-organized cabinets and closets, threw old junk out and made room for the new.

So far I've donated six bags of old clothes to Good Will. Two trash bags filled with old magazines will never see the light of day again. Expired canned goods that sat accusingly in the back of my pantry are now food for the rats at the dump. I even alphabetized the books on my shelves. Talk about type "A"....

Perhaps I'm unconsciously working through the problems in my book as I clean. Then when I return to my outline the issues are resolved and the ideas flow. Whatever is going on it's working, so I won't analyze it too much.   I'd be interested to know if anyone else had a similar experience? How do you meet challenges with your works-in-progress?
