I’m starting my series of 7 writing tips with something a little unconventional. You might not find this in writing manuals but it works for me, so it may work for you.
If writing feels like hard work, it may be because your body is struggling as much as your mind.
The secret to unlocking your creative energies may be exercise. As vigorous exercise resets your stress levels, wiping away the shadow of previous stresses, you will be clearing the space in your brain, ready for writing!
So if you don’t exercise regularly and find writing a real struggle, consider improving your fitness – it may improve your writing.
