Need to get in the mood?

It often takes time for a writer to get back into writing when they first approach the computer. If that happens to you, try this: 1) the last thing before leave your desk, stop in the middle of a sentence or paragraph. In the morning, you’ll force engagement by trying to remember what you wanted to say. 2) Try ‘ink shedding’.  Write (about anything except your story) for a full three minutes (no cheating) by the clock without stopping, without editing, without lifting your pencil. No stopping to think, rest or change your mind. You’ll find that everything cluttering your mind gets spilled onto the page, thereby clearing your mind for writing. Then, don’t read it. Just throw it away. Okay, when I say go, write.
