We are immersed in too many words. The proliferation of text makes it hard to hear yourself. Writers should embrace silent, wordless activities. Some good ones: walking, cooking, cleaning, yard work, listening to music (no lyrics).

Big yes to that! My personal list of activities also includes taking a shower 😂 a lot of good ideas for writing come to me that way. It’s funny how a lot of writing is actually not writing and leaving the words just be and take their time.

THIS! Definitely love a good walk, or sitting staring mindlessly on the sun setting above the river. Also just read some writings of Yehudi Menuhin, and he too underlines the necessity of silence. Couldn't find that text online, but he mentions it in this interview
