Introduction-Creating The Flow

In the book, On Writing, Stephen King talks about the power of muses. He talks about the need to have a space set up to write. The beautiful thing about having a dedicated space to write–the muses will always show up! You have a dedicated space to dream, to create and to do so unencumbered. This type of dedicated space is essential to creating The Flow!

1.) Make the space inviting for you! Whether this be a room with a view, a hotel room, or even desk in your room or your bed! This spot should be yours–totally obedient to what its you want and would like to do.

2.) Remind yourself that this space is just to write. Not sleeping. Not texting. Not eating. It is for writing. You will be amazed at what will happen once you have repurposed/purposed such a space.

3.) Write as if no one will watch you. This talent is yours to wield and to share. You must remember that your first fan, your first audience, your first member of your soon-to-be anxious public is you.

One of the essential things you must remember about creating such a space, is you as a writer are in charge of this space! You control it! You must control it! The Flow is not this cloud, full of rain, come to water your talent. Sometimes, you have to summon such rain. You must be ready to summon such rain when you need it!

So, summon the rain. Make that rain feed the streams of the visions you desire. Make the streams find the rivers of talent, and from there, make them flow to ocean of the world you desire to create. You can do it. You must do it.

Create–make the muses work.
