And guess what, my post will be the 2.540.000.001 answer 🙂
I was asking for an answer for a week straight.
To brief you into my experience I can tell you this: this week I read an entire Cambridge course which I absolutely loved, I read a book which serves as a writing coach, and even skimmed one about the famous writers of our times.
After so much self teaching I must be honest and confess that I was feeling breathless.
And to get some air, I just needed to read again, I mean a proper reading … so back to my first real love “Harry Potter” series.
That is where I found it. Into my own being.
And you can call it a romantic, or cheesy answer perhaps, but this is my truth: I just need to grab a pen or a keyboard and simply write for 5 minutes non stop.
Then the magic happens: an abundance of ideas emerge, and worlds that I didn’t even knew existed inside of me come to light.
I found that a blank sheet of paper is a brand new chance, a brand new world in which I breath life into.
I can create and there are simply no barriers.
I found that after 5 minutes of continuous writing come more minutes of analyzing and learning step by step things about structure, order, characters .
But I couldn’t apply writing techniques to a blank sheet of paper, right?
So, how to write , for me has the most basic answer: pen, keyboard, and 5 minutes, no matter the topic.
Yup, it’s that simple and that scary.
We don’t need to procrastinate anymore into zillions of Google pages when we can just .. write.
Like me, now…
