HOW TO FREE UP YOUR MIND FOR WRITING THOUGHTS

As writers we must try to keep our mind free and open to the ideas we want to express. For this to happen several steps must be taken. If you are like me, as a writer, your mind can be constantly swirling with ideas and thoughts. There must be a way to organize and remember them.

One, get rid of "mental clutter." I keep several "to do" lists so that things won't be on my mind because I am afraid that I will forget something. This frees up my mind for "writing thoughts" to enter.

Two, do not procrastinate on dealing with issues or getting things done. This ties up your thinking. As soon as possible take care of unresolved issues in your family or relationships.

Three, have short term writing goals. This keeps you writing. You don't stagnate. I have a goal of posting one article a week on faithwriters.

Four, keep a "writer's notebook." This can include ideas for articles or books plus any details or outline to support those ideas. You can have a heading at the top of different pages and then write supporting thoughts under it. If an idea or detail comes into your mind throughout the course of the day write it down. If you don't write it down immediately you may lose it and never think of it again. When you do this you can also let the ideas or thoughts "simmer" for a time, adding to them in coming days and weeks.

Five, a journal comes in handy. This is specifically for the purpose of logging your own personal growth, spiritual maturity and insights from Bible reading. As a Christian writer this is probably one of the most important aspects. We must consistently stay in the Word of God.

Happy writing!
