I love Henry Miller’s 11 Commandments of work so much that I’ve printed out a copy to carry in my laptop case. Even though his rules refer to writing, I think they can be applied to most any calling or vocation. I especially like #5 because if I’m not inspired or called by the Muse, I just give up instead of plugging away at something, like editing or research, that doesn’t require creativity.

  1. Regarding number five, I clean–my studio, my desk, my house. Somehow that kind of work that brings order to my environment clears my head and unblocks me.
