THE Best Writing Trick Revealed:

(How To)

“Show up”

1. Put yourself in front of your writing.
2. Eliminate distractions (use macfreedom.com to block Internet access) and just wait.
3. Don’t eat, read, or even fidget.
4. For 30 minutes, you can do one of two things. It doesn’t matter which one you do. Both are fine. Just do one or the other. You can do 1. Nothing whatsoever, or 2. Write.

 

Even if you choose to do nothing, you’ll be thinking. Thinking is likely to lead you to a thought you want to jot down, and jotting down that thought is likely to lead to writing.

PS: Writing time is writing time. It’s not research, reading, editing or citing.
