Letting the life energy flow through my body, and paying attention to that. The "Source." But there's a little pad in my pocket or nearby, and if something breaks in--a thought, a new idea--I can jot down a phrase to remind me later. And sometimes it's the very thing that solves where I'm stuck or gives me more to write about when back at my desk. Sometimes it gets me racing back to my desk.

Or, just to get going on anything, sitting down to write non-stop, free-flow, talking on paper, from a prompt perhaps (a few words, or a question I ask myself), trying to suspend the critic during this just "write-abundantly" creative phase. What unlocks it all for me is finding the voice that feels free and--surprise!--has a lot to say. Good or bad? No judging yet. Not to fix at this moment. To trust that later, with my editor's hat on, I'll be able to revise and re-see as needed.(less)
