Dan Brown has revealed how he cures writer’s block.
By hanging upside down.
[He] straps himself to a table in his home gym that rotates him into a position that lets blood — and, it seems, ideas — flow to his head.
Brown, 48, said: “It does help. You’ve just got to relax and let go.
“The more you do it, the more you let go. Then soon it’s just, “Wow”.’
Dan Brown’s cure for writer’s block might seem kooky at first, but those who practice meditation know that headstands and other inversions significantly calm the nervous system and invite clarity of thought.

“Around the time we had our first home computer, my Dad started to keep track of all of the books that he read in an Excel Spreadsheet. He kept his spreadsheet up to date for almost twenty years, and he’d accumulated 10,496 books before his death. My Dad rated his books on a 1-10 scale, but his average score floated around 7.5/10, so I think he generally enjoyed most of what he read.” A tribute to a devoted reader.
