Think of all the incredible things you've seen along the way since birth and how many times you've had an idea that escaped you later. Wouldn't it be nice to delve back into your mental storage files and pull up something when you need it? Writers often go to sleep thinking on a story and find the answer to a problem while asleep when their minds are free to roam. Kelly explains how brilliant creators like Thomas Edison used the hypnagogic state to find solutions - a method she shares in the book. Lightning didn't automatically end up you light socket. <grin> THINKING WRITE teaches you how to do that at will, not just when it happens to hit. And...the book comes with a meditative CD for writers.
Kelly brought us a terrific book with TIME TO WRITE that answered how all level of writers up to best selling authors find the time to write. Now she's brought us a gift for our muse with THINKING WRITE.

Stone starts with an insightful explanation of how our brain works by storing material that we can use in our writing--even though we don't know it's there until we look for it. Since our attention span is limited, we can only focus on one thing at a time. However, everything that passes through our minds is stored permanently. By making the most of our subconscious, we can finish our novel, or collection of poems, or our book of family memories.
Some of the suggestions for creating our ideal writing life are these: remember and keep a dream journal, spend time in nature, have the color green in our writing space, focus on our breathing, use different styles of music to create moods, be silent, and most important, have our own place to write, filled with items that are special and inspirational. We should establish a routine before we write that will help us move from "world mode" to "creative mode." We should get mundane tasks out of the way before we begin writing. However, the key is that we must spend time with our writing every day.
Stone says, "How you conduct yourself on a daily basis impresses upon your subconscious what you believe about yourself. Making a commitment to write and surrounding yourself with people who reinforce this is a powerful way to become a creative, talented writer. To get genuine intent you first need genuine belief.Read more ›
