    Not sure if it's the same thing but what I find useful if I get writer's block or just find myself floundering I simply walk away from it for a while.

    Struggling on only leads to frustration.  I have one or two favourite quiet places to walk and think and if that doesn't work I will re read up to the sticking point just before I go to bed.

    Is that meditation ?  I don't know but it is amazing how there are times I awke with a jolt and be wide awake at 4 5 in the morning with a rush of new thoughts and ideas.

    Hope this helps.

    I definitely do think it helps. Some of my richest ideas come from the times when I have been daydreaming, walking, running, cycling, or doing some other solitary activity, lost in thought. I also like to people watch and weave stories in my mind about what the people remind me of.

    I find meditation helps my general life, but I haven't tried it in any way related to writing.
