And if you’re not linked in with the writing train facebook page, or are morally opposed to fb ; ), here’s a thought I posted there last night:
We’ve been talking, in the classes and workshops, about how to relax in your writing. Relaxed concentration – that’s the thing, I think, really! So try writing somewhere relaxed. Designate a comfortable old cardigan or jumper your writing uniform, and put it on each time you’re about to start writing. Write on the fly. I’ve just been writing standing at the bar counter in my kitchen. Rilke-style : ). ( The standing, not the writing, I add quickly : ). Or write somewhere so noisy that you’ve full excuse for writing badly. Then write badly and “mend it good.”
