Write By Midnight Tip 2-20-19

Today, get your head space in the right place to write.

Start by doing something physical to get your blood pumping and your creative juices flowing. Before you sit down to write, try taking a walk, dancing to your favorite song, stretching exercises or jumping jacks.

Then, clear the air – literally. Open a window, even if it’s just for a moment if it’s chilly outside. Light a candle, burn some incense or turn on an essential oil diffuser. Take in slow, deep breaths.

Finally, channel your inner muse. Close your eyes and think of the scene you plan to write. What mood do you want to convey? Try to get in the heads of your characters and envision what they would say and how they would act. Strive to reach a calm moment of clarity.

Once your head is in the right place, open your eyes and unleash your words onto the page.
