How to Use a Writing Ritual to Spark Inspiration and Get Out of Creative Ruts

I didn’t even realize I had a writing ritual until I read this article. I am currently working on a novel. Before I actually started writing it, but after I had created my plot lines and character list, I created a power point slideshow that I watch before setting to work writing. The slideshow includes photos of famous actors that I imagine in the roles of my characters, and images of scenery that I pulled off of the internet, all set to appropriate music. The slideshow helps get my brain back into the setting of my novel. Once the slideshow is complete, I put on my “writing music” and follow my mind as it leads me to the words.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
