I don’t think you have to be a manuscript editor to … well, find the hilarity in this. When librarians were asked about some of the strangest things they’ve found in library books, balogna slices, a Pop-Tart, and divorce papers were among some of the answers. Check this out!
First off I woulԁ like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that
I’d like to ask if you dο not mind. I was curiоus to know
how you center yourself and clear your mіnd prior to writing.
I һave had diffiｃulty clearing my tһoughts in getting my ideas
out there. I tгuly do enjoy writing however іt just
seems like the first 10 to 15 mіnutes are usually wasted
just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
The Write Edit says
Good question! Personally, I am a teacher of Primordial Sound meditation, so that grounds me before approaching anything, including writing. But for non-meditating writers, I would say that if your mind is racing too much, take a quiet walk outside. Do something that requires no thought. Do yoga. Do the dishes. Just sit quietly with your eyes closed and breathe. These will all help center you. Then just write, even if it’s not good. Eventually, the ideas will come. If thoughts are still racing around, write them down, and then put them aside. This way, you’ve purged them … for now.
