“Start writing no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
Welcome to The Daily Buzz, Yellow Scribe’s writer’s blog. We’re here to help you write and most importantly – publish that book! Today’s article deals with an important aspect that encourages the writing process that is, its environment.
Writing is an art that requires complete focus and dedication when resolving to begin. Mood factor matters as well. However, the environment you choose plays an important role on your thought processes. The environment you choose impacts your creativity and imagination levels. Thus, one must dwell in proper surroundings that would help make writing an interesting task.
Here, in this article, I will be discussing the ways of enhancing your writing environment through a step by step approach.
Silence Is Significant!
The first and foremost thing to be done is to choose a peaceful environment which has no place for chaos. Silence is essential for complete focus on your piece.
Ignore The Stress!
The second step is to ignore all types of stressful situations and continue to remain calm. Remember that you are a writer, and fretting too much on trivial matters may not be good for your mental health and may affect your imagination process. If at all, you find it difficult to forget such stressful situations then you could chat with your close ones for some advice and find peace. Also, one musn’t wait for deadlines in order to begin working. This escalates pressure and stress.
The third step is developing the habit of journaling. You could journal your daily tasks or maybe some of your writing prompts. This would acquaint you to the writing process and boost your creativity levels.
Nature Awaits You!
The fourth step is approaching nature. You could possibly visit the nearest woods or the serene beach or maybe even a public garden. After all, Walt Disney came up with the idea of Animation when he saw a couple of kids playing in the garden. You never know what ideas could make you famous!
Set Up Your Own Space!
The fifth step is choosing your own personal space and setting up your ‘writing office’. A cozy, silent and peaceful corner stimulates one to work even more efficiently!
Favourites Make The Day!
The sixth step is surrounding yourself around your favourite set of things. It could be some of your artifacts, paintings or even some motivational quotes. Your mind loves it when it is surrounded by its ‘favourites’.
Ignore Toxic People!
Ignore toxic people and don’t waste your time arguing with anyone. Arguments encourage stress levels and anxiety and sometimes even lead to depression. This isn’t good for a writer. Working on creativity requires a stable mind which is disturbed and distracted by such issues.
Blow Away The Negative Thoughts!
Dispose all the negative thoughts. Remain optimistic and surrender the outcome of your efforts to the universe. Do not worry about your future since it only arouses fear which as discussed earlier, isn’t the right discourse for a writer.
Judgmental? Ummm…Not Preferable?
Don’t develop a judgmental approach towards anyone. This diverts the mind from doing the needful and makes it focus more on the insignificant side of life.
Resort to spiritual practices like meditation in order to develop a shield of peace around your mind which would battle all the negativity!
Have A Good Approach!
Lastly, remain compassionate and have a good approach towards everybody around you! Make at least one person smile in a day! That smile is enough to sum up all the peace and happiness in your mind!
Thus, I would conclude stating that a good lifestyle (materialistic lifestyle is excluded here), that is the one created by you matters when it comes to writing. One must be matured enough to sweep off all the negativity and resolve to refrain from approaching toxic people who could deter your mental health. Be systematic and orderly when it comes to writing and ensure that everything happens at your own pace. Do not stress yourself when it comes to writing. Love your work and it will love you back!
