3 Quick Writing Tips

1. Find your witching hour. What time of day or night are you most open and honest with yourself? When is your brain is most cooperative and your heart most willing to spill the beans? You have a rhythm that is deeply influenced by the rest of the universe, I promise. You have low and high points. Steady and sporadic beats. Perigees and apogees. Pay attention to yourself and you’ll realize your peak times.

2. Find your totem. And it doesn’t necessarily need to be a silver spinning top like DiCaprio’s. Just something tangible that you can hold that’ll help you tap into deeper areas of yourself, something that triggers or soothes the way you need it to, no matter what, something that will help center you where you need to be, no matter what; an anchor. It helps. I have a little rose-quartz elephant that aids me emotionally.

3. Fix your social media diet. Have you ever felt weighed down by your social media feeds? There’s always that one person who puts out nothing but negative remarks. Or how about those six major news channels that report how tragically the world is burning – in high definition? Is there too much violence, sadness or death in your feeds? That shit effects your flow, I’m so not sorry to say. Broaden your horizons. Expose yourself to the better parts of this world that still remain. Change your diet and fill your feed with affirmations, kittens and beautiful people doing beautiful things. It’ll raise your frequency. Don’t be distracted by the evil. No, no, Satan, not today!

I hope I’ve helped some. It took me a long time to learn these things and I’ve grown from them tremendously. And if you guys have any tips you’d like to share, lay them on me.

  1. The totem idea intrigues me. I have a purple flourite owl in my bedroom. It was a rare impulse buy for me but I’ve just moved him onto my writing desk. πŸ™‚

  2. My Muse tends to appear between dusk and dawn. Certain types of music inspire and send me in various directions. Blues, Jazz, Gospel and African music.

    I took a Facebreak from Facebook during the month of November.

    1. I’ve just recently discovered that blues inspires me too. Facebook was the first to be put on a diet haha

  3. This was an interesting read! Thanks for sharing. I’m a newbie writer. At first I was just writing for the heck of it. But I want to improve on it. I get my flow when I first-hand experience it. But, it’s the same theme all over again, tbh. I want to channel emotions in writing but I couldn’t get it out unless I experience it first. Got any more tips? Cheers!

    1. what helps me is putting myself in someone elses shoes and then imagining how they would feel. that thing you feel when you identify with your favorite characters? try to harness that and visualize. also, think of all the five senses. they will help paint the picture. I hope this helps! if you write everyday, you’ll definitely find your way
