I’m fully in the book writing groove. ⁣ ⁣

The things that work for me in writing are: ⁣ ⁣

Morning Pages.

3 pages every morning by hand. It trains me that I’m a writing thinker these months, this is how I process things.⁣ ⁣

Daily meditation.

This builds my concentration skills. I can see what mind I’m working with each day and let that decide what I tackle. ⁣ ⁣

Mood music.

I’ve written 8 plays listening to Air’s The Virgin Suicides soundtrack, but it wasn’t working this time. I went to the bookstore a few weeks ago and heard a radio show on the university station, it was ambient and I liked the way it made me feel. I listen to it a few hours a day. ⁣

Excursions! Every day I plan an outing like a walk by the river, buying flowers, sitting in the sauna, or going to the herb store. Nothing too long, just time to step away and process. ⁣ ⁣

Not discounting what I’ve already made.

As a prolific content creator, I copy and paste stuff from my courses and videos and use that as a launch off for a topic in my book. I inspire myself.⁣ ⁣

Talking it out.

I haven’t done this for weeks, but when I first got started on the book I felt I couldn’t get the right words out through writing. I recorded & transcribed it. In the early days, just use what works to get it out. ⁣
