Have you ever had a problem go round and round in your head and you can’t work out how to solve it? Bleary-eyed with insomnia, you get up, grab a notebook and pencil and start scribbling about what’s bothering you. Somehow you come up with some ideas for a possible way forward. It’s worked for me!
RLF Consultant Fellow Heather Dyer does really interesting work encouraging writers to allow the unconscious to process information and help them to come up with the solution. Here she develops the idea for students working on assignments. It works equally well for other writers.
