Continued from page 1

My living room recliner was good for brainstorming from reading. For writing personal development topics,repparttar left seat ofrepparttar 140064 couch next to a very large scenic picture window isrepparttar 140065 place. For long how tos, it wasrepparttar 140066 dining room table or a specific McDonalds. I don't know if it wasrepparttar 140067 smell of grease orrepparttar 140068 acoustics that lit a fire under my pen.

The library and its smell of old books make me tired and snoozy. Sometimes my mind felt too vibrant and jumpy with allrepparttar 140069 possibilities and paths open to me.

Do you like to stare outrepparttar 140070 window? Me too! I have an awesome view from my wall-to-wall office window. I use to think day dreaming on a topic wasn't productive but have foundrepparttar 140071 openness feeling brings in expansiveness to my writings. As long as I'm not sitting at my desk while staring.

What can you do when you need to sparkrepparttar 140072 imagination and you have already taken a shower? Do you take another? What about driving? With gas prices jumping skyward who wants to drive just to sparkrepparttar 140073 creative bug.

Here are a few ideas on how to solve:

Buy a miniature waterfall to recreaterepparttar 140074 shower feel. Or use a sound devices that imitates a rambling brook or rain. Place it carefully where you want to fuel a particular type of muse. Turn it on, close your eyes, and place yourself inrepparttar 140075 shower. Toss some water on your face before hand if that helps. One of my clients, turns onrepparttar 140076 shower, sits inrepparttar 140077 bathroom for a few minutes to kick repparttar 140078 process in, and then she moves to a chair.

Instead of driving, sit inrepparttar 140079 car with your left hand onrepparttar 140080 steering wheel, close your eyes, and imaginerepparttar 140081 movement, holding a pen in repparttar 140082 right hand with paper balanced on your knee or on a board. If you are returning home do this after you have parked. The movement ofrepparttar 140083 car will remain.

Some of these may be zany for you, some not. Spark your imagination, try new and different things. Try them at least three or four times and adapt to what feels right for that moment. Your writing productivity and creativity is sure to double.
