One of the problems I (and I naively assume every other beginner leader) faces is remembering patterns I know. Suppose I have 15 patterns that I can execute well, once I choose one. However I find it difficult to think of a next pattern to do "on the spot". I believe some refer to this problem as a "dancer's block". So, here I ask if you people have a method to quickly access patterns you know. I understand it comes with practice, but I'm hopeful there is a secret shortcut method as well. Ideally, this method would also account for choosing appropriate pattern that also fits hand hold, position, and floor space. But at this point, just thinking of a "next" pattern would be a good start. I think if I know what I want to do next (or soon), then it is easy to figure out bridge patterns to get to the necessary configuration (hand hold, position, floor space). *Just* to demonstrate a possible solution, I could assign each figure a number, and memorize that list, so all I have to do then is to think of a number in a 1-15 range. Instead of numbers, perhaps I can use colors, or some other well known sufficiently large set (alphabet, states, santa reindeer names, republican candidates).
