WRITING TIP: Invite your body to do the writing

writing tipTo access a deeper source for your writing, it helps if you make sure your whole body is present before you start. Try beginning a writing session by putting your hands on the keyboard in proper position, closing your eyes and turning your attention inside. Notice the most prominent sensation in your body and type a short description of it, such as “throb in shoulder” or “tingling in finger tips.” Keep your attention on body sensations and when a new sensation captures your attention, type that. Do this for a few minutes, then begin to write. You might be surprised at the result.
