Writers Horoscope December 23: Emptying your head…revisited.

From a favored source of inspiration…

Another rejuvenating tip from Joel at Lifehack:

Do an info-dump so your head is clear enough to create instead of worry.

empty your head

I’ve referred to Julia Cameron’s ‘morning pages’ before, but they are well worth revisiting. Quote from Cameron: “There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*–
they are not high art. They are not even ‘writing.'”

Srini Rao, in his Why I Write 1000 Words Every Day, advocates this approach as well.
Quote from Rao:
“By getting incoherent thoughts out of your head and onto a blank page, you make room for coherent thoughts and better ideas.”

Note: Joel at Lifehack also suggests singing in the shower. I held off on sharing that with you, but that was one serious In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida I recently belted out.

Writers Horoscope for October 6: Still unmotivated? Look inside you.

Following yesterday’s suggestions, you cleaned up your physical workspace.

It only helped a little.

Time to clean up your inner workspace.

Here’s a great start, thanks to Todd Brison’s 195 Words to Keep You Going If You Feel Down.

Highlights:

  • He takes aim at ‘Comfort’ and ‘Safety’.
  • He tells us to listen to our inner ‘don’t give up’ messages.

Give it a shot.
