Every artist needs to understand that creative energy is an unending river that flows in our universe. It is a form of fluid, eternal and unchanging aura. Many of us tend to forget that this creative energy can only be tapped into when you’re in the right state of mind. I like to call that state, your “happy place”.
When you’re in your “happy place”, you are naturally channeling energy from the universe. That my friends, is how you create magical masterpieces that withstand the test of time. But before any of that happens, you have to find a way to get into that state of mind.
If you’re like 50% of the writers out there, coffee and some light music may be what it takes. Others prefer a quiet environment with no distractions. There are some who even work extremely well while listening to rock music. Sadly, the right way to get into the zone can’t be taught in any class. You’ll have to find it on your own.
Personally, a nice double shot espresso gets me into the zone. It’s clam and sensual yet energizing and invigorating. This is a practical approach that will get you writing even when you don’t feel like doing so.
