The art of preparation

true tale

The art of writing is not just sitting at the keyboard or writing in a journal. It’s daydreaming, staring into an open sky, or your surroundings. Listening to music, watching a really really good movie. Its all these things. Inspiration has come to me while watching commercials on tv…yes, it has. So feed your brain, give it more and more. Look at everything in a different way, the trees around you, interactions of passersby. All of this observation and inner reflection is fuel for your writing muse.

What i find helps me is sitting outside in the evening, listening to the wrapping up of the day around me. And watching the light dim as the minutes tick past. Then the night comes, which brings the mind to a different and more introspective place. You’d be amazed what you can think of, and work out sitting alone and letting go of logical thought.

Try it, you might surprise yourself. 🙂
