~ Writing Tips ~
The key to creative writing is to connect with your inner Creative Warrior by entering into the unique psychological state of consciousness called FLOW. The most effective method I know to accomplish that is to perform an exercise called FreeWriting. It’s based on maintaining a stream of consciousness mindset for a minimum of 7 minutes. Just write. Don’t stop. Don’t edit. Don’t judge. Let yourself go. Your writing doesn’t need to “make sense”. So don’t try to force it.
You’ll know that you’ve entered the FLOW state when you are fully immersed in the act of writing. Your sense of time will all but disappear. You may lose control of your writing as the words move through you onto the page without any conscious intent on your part. And that’s where you want to be. Congratulations, you’ve connected with your inner Creative Warrior!
Warning: After experiencing the FLOW state for the first time, you’ll be hooked. You’ll want to taste it again and again. The good news is that the more you practice FreeWriting, the easier and quicker you’ll achieve FLOW.
