If you have to write a query letter pitch, assign yourself a hated household task. Tell yourself you cannot work on that letter until the task is done. Inspiration magically arrives.
Stepping away from a manuscript away can be a huge relief.
Coming back to a manuscript always brings insight. Sometimes it offers pleasant surprises.
Spring is an optimistic time of year.
Don't hesitate when spring bulbs bloom. Grab that camera before the deer find them. (There will be no chionodoxa or "glory of the snow" pictures this year.)

We had a bumper crop of amaryllis.
The Stardust produced a second stalk and five more flowers. Here they are backlit for a stained glass effect. Note the stamens and carpels in the center of the blossom.
Now Dancing Queen has started to bloom. This flower is a double which means there are more petals. Double flowers are homeotic mutants in which stamens and/or carpels are replaced by petals.
Here's The Little Shop of Horrors View
