When was the last time you were bored?
During my childhood, those who dared utter the forbidden phrase “I’m bored” were saddled with a chore or two (or three). Boredom is often viewed as idleness, and the solution is to fill that void with productivity.
What if I told you that, as a writer, boredom holds an advantage?
No one enjoys boredom, and we instinctively avoid the discomfort by searching for something to do. For writers and artists, this results in increased creativity. When a writer has nothing to occupy his attention, his imagination flourishes.
