1. Recognize your block. Don’t waste time sitting there forever. Give yourself a set time and if writing doesn’t flow go to step #2
2. Open the door or the window and use the 4 elements. Take a deep breath in. Feel the moisture on your face. Imagine yourself being lifted to the sky with energy. Feel the earth beneath your feet.
3. Sit down to write. Start with one of these three sentences:
“This is a free float of writing and I’m excited to see it’s direction.”
