Scary thoughts

I’ve found that meditating before writing fiction gives me great results.

I’m new to it, but I’ve done guided meditations since 1990+, and hypnosis and auto-hypnosis since 2003 or 2004.

This is how I do it, and the exercise only takes three minutes:

  • I sit comfortably in my office chair.
  • I set a timer to 3 minutes.
  • I make sure to relax my shoulders and sit up with a straight back.
  • Then I put my hands on my legs, palms down.
  • I start the timer and close my eyes.
  • I often use a short sentence or a few words to meditate over. This helps me stay clear of unwanted thoughts.
  • But when I don’t use a sentence and just allow the thoughts to come and then dismiss them, I sometimes experience scary thoughts. I let go of them.

But afterwards?

Heh! Then it’s time for journal writing, and you know what you can do with all those scary thoughts?

You can write horror, that’s what.

And you know what horror readers like and dislike?

No?

And we thought you were just plain lazy when you did this… ๐Ÿ™‚
Just kiddin’. It’s a good idea. I have also found that if I have an idea I can’t quite put into words I leave it and insert two stars in my writting. When I wake up the next day, it’s all very clear, so somehow the brain must have fixed it while sleeping.

And yes, I know what you’re thinking. There is one…. Brain that is. ๐Ÿ˜›

This is a good blog – many useful thoughts. Thanks for inspiring your readers, Britt.
