I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos! Reply Hello, and thanks! While I myself struggle with writer’s block, I think one of the most valuable things I ever learned was from Allen Ginsberg: If you don’t show anyone, you can write whatever you want. A lot of the Beat poets advocated the idea of “first thought, best thought,” and I think that as soon as you separate your ego from your writing, you’ll notice the words will start to come naturally. Don’t focus on the end result. As an exercise, try writing a stream of consciousness; sometimes I find writing with as little punctuation as possible helps, since your flow isn’t disrupted. Again, I’m no expert, but I hope this helps in some way. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
