Writing Hack #9 of 33 Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Craving to Publish
This writing hack has to do with setting the tone even before you sit down to write. Clear your mind before beginning to write. A cluttered mind makes for cluttered writing which will be difficult for the reader to follow. In today’s world of videos, gifs, movies, and TV shows, the act of reading requires more focus and time. Therefore, writing must engage the reader, and be clear, and concise with no tricky edges, or complicated concepts, if we are to keep the reader until the end. The writing needs to unfold in a clear, chronological and organized manner.
A cluttered mind, with emotional issues, mental challenges, can also keep you from writing anything. You sit at your writing desk and all you can think about is a conflict you had with your mate this morning, your to-do list or other your own insecurities. The best way to clear your mind is to do 5 minutes of deep breathing, meditation, or yoga. Whatever way you prefer to empty the space in your mind and connect with your creativity needs to be a daily habit. Once your mind is clear the words can flow and your writing will be easy to follow.
