Fallow field just outside my window
Fallow: Dormant, Inactive.
Fallow field: Intentionally giving a field a rest, a break from crop production, in order to replenish soil moisture and nutrition.
The same can apply to writing…. whether I am writing a blog post or a book…
“for he thought I was idle…. perhaps I am, and perhaps I am not. He forgot that a plowman’s mind wants to lie fallow a little, and can’t give a crop every year….” John Plowman
