Lessons from freewriting

In high school I was taught that in order to keep the creative juices flowing while writing, you had to always keep your hands moving— either writing about trivialities or even just scribbling, if you were really drawing a blank.

Perhaps that is the reason I developed this weird habit of tapping Ctrl, Shift, Alt, and all the other no-op keys I can find on any given keyboard.

(If you were curious, and I really doubt you were, I also wave my hands around when I draw a blank while speaking.)
