Developing our own unique rituals can help us become more productive in our writing. They offer us the freedom to tap into ourselves – to find those things that connect us with our imagination. For some, sitting at a desk wearing a pair of boxers and sipping on coffee might bring on the muse. Others might connect with their story by taking a walk in the woods or listening to a soundtrack of their favorite movies. (I love listening to music from The Lord of the Rings.) The choice of ritual isn’t as important as the results. Ultimately, the object is to clear away the static so our thoughts and ideas flow.What are your rituals?
