Get Up and Dance

This month I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge, blogging every day of the month of April, except Sundays, on a topic from A to Z. I’m posting short-form topics meant to get you talking and sharing! Join the discussion in the comments.

Movement in the body creates movement in the brain. It’s science, I swear. Those of us doing sedentary creative pursuits sometimes neglect movement.

Every now and then I have to get up and just wiggle to get the flow going again.
