As a writer, the way in which you begin any creative writing session sets the tone for everything that follows. The mindset you bring to the page affects how your writing flows – or not as the case may be!
Beginnings are important at every level, from connecting to the creative impulse as it arises to taking time to prepare so that all aspects of yourself are in complete alignment and you feel ready to write.
One simple but effective way to do this is to spend some time in stillness before you write to encourage deep writing to flow.
Your primary focus may well be on the best way to begin your writing session. However, endings are just as important because the way you complete your writing session will determine the quality, and the results, of your next activity.
