Whether it’s dancing, singing, or writing, we need to be loose. Comfortable, not conscious.

If you are too conscious, too tight, and too concerned about what others might think, then writing is a struggle.

How do we get loose?

My strategy is morning pages. Take a sheet of paper (or Google Docs) and write nonsense. Don’t edit, just keep writing whatever pops into your head. Do this for 10 minutes, and then start writing your article or post.
