Writers always seem to have particular methods of helping them tune into their writing minds. Ideas come at odd times—usually when you're doing something repetitive when your mind can meander—like taking a shower or ironing or washing dishes (those last two may not apply any more since almost no one irons or washes dishes by hand these days. Did anyone think about THAT when they invented wrinkle-resistant fabric and the dishwasher??)
But how does it work for you when you've got the idea and want to write it? Not just jot it down, but actually make it part of your book?
I've posted here on writer's yoga and on creative visualization meditation(click on Creative Energy in the Pages Bar above), two of my favorite methods. A long brisk walk is another I like, and then there's playing the piano for a while. All seem to help with jump-starting the disciplined writing process. I'm always interested in what other writers find useful. So, what works for you? Do you do something particular each day to warm up for your writing time?
