Do you have any writing rituals that you always do before or after writing? :)
I used to think that famous writers had writing rituals because artistic genius required weirdness. :) But now, I realize that it's actually a very practical thing to have a ritual.
If I can get completely into my story world, I’m "in the zone,” exactly where I need to be for storytelling. But getting there can be difficult because writers are bombarded with real-world intrusions all day long that constantly try to pull us out of the zone.
I get that a ritual can help the transition into the story world and keep us there until we’re ready to come out. But I can’t seem to stick with one. I’ve tried a bunch of habits on for size, but nothing has stuck. So I’m still working on it!
