“Writing Practice,” the brain-child of Natalie Goldberg, helps writers overcome blocks and tap into the deep creative mind.
Set a timer. Don’t think. Just write. Be as specific as you can. Ten Minutes, Go.
Keep your hand moving until the timer goes off! If you get stuck, write the topic again and start over. Try these topics:
- Everything I know about Spring in Ohio
- Take it from the top
- Give me the color green . . .
- Mashed potatoes
- What is the most important thing?
If you write fiction, write these from a character’s point of view in either first person (I said) or third person (He said, She said).
Keep your hand moving, no matter what. It works.
Monkey mind (aka the editor or critic) is only a mechanism of the mind.It is not God!
Just keep writing.
