2 thoughts on “A Weed By Any Other Name

  1. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

    • Great question! If I’m having writer’s block when I first sit down to write, then I just start typing and sometimes will even set a timer if I’m really have trouble. That way I have a set amount of time that I am committed to write for. Maybe just a few sentences I write in that time frame will be usable, or maybe even nothing at all. But I generally find that just letting the words flow – basically like automatic writing – gets the creative juices flowing a bit more.

      Also, phrases will pop into my head throughout the day and I’ll take a moment to type them out into a note on my phone or make a voice memo. That way when I go to write later I don’t have to rely on my crummy memory.
