USEFUL TIPS FOR WRITING THAT ACTUALLY WORK
1. Use a notepad for drafting, rather than a notebook:
“NOTEPAD”, the one where you flip off pages vertically. You should start writing on it; the writing flow of yours will be awesome. It might be due to fewer distractions from the previous page as notebook.
2. Never worry about editing, just go with the flow first:
Never edit in your mind. Of course your first draft is crappy but editing while you write makes you miss some jewels that might add up to the glory of the finished copy. Writing is a miracle; don’t demean it to the level of magic by editing the elements that could have turned a mere phrase into an eloquent work of art.
3. Cater to yourself with specific music that relates to the mood of your intended writing:
Music always taps an unconscious side of you and it has the profound ability to transform your senses if you let it. So while writing, try to relate the music to the context/genre/mood/plot of intended writing, which of course, is not always the mood you’re in. You have to discover your own taste for music only by trial and error, yet the result is worthy enough. Note: Make sure the music is without words/lyrics that might distract you. Listen to plain melody that suits your scene. If you are comfortable with it, just go ahead.
