Try This With Your Right Foot!

Okay, so this isn't exactly writing related, but it is something you can do while waiting for your muse.

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. While doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction. Seriously, it will!

If you're like me, you'll keep trying this over and over to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't; it's preprogrammed in your brain. This info is supposedly from an orthopedic surgeon. Now, get back to writing.

That was incredibly WEIRD! I wasted 10-15 minutes trying to over-ride the tendency. Neat!

That is just TOO fun. It could be addicting. And a motive for "murder by going crazy"!!!!!!!

Our brains are amazing, aren't they? I just tried this again and realized I didn't even have to write the "6" in the air. All I had to do was think about it while posing one finger in the air and my foot changed directions. Wow.
