Sometimes being unproductive is not being unproductive at all.
We need time to digest and try, time to start and stop and wander and experiment.
Not all our hours result in beautiful things.
But the seeds of the beautiful things are always there, in the time we spent.
Allow yourself that freedom, to not make anything important today.
"I'm working on a few different stories at the moment. It's hard to tell which of them, if any, will turn into a book. If I understood about how to write books, I wouldn't have to travel down so many roads to nowhere, and I wouldn't go three or four years between
novels." --John Green
