Of course, first rough draft implies LOTS of editing, revising and rewriting but it IS progress, I'm happy to report!
And so there's something to be said about a writer's rituals. Seems like I have to do these things to appease the Muses before they start chattering freely;
with tiara placed prominently on my head, I play these Brainwave Binaural programs for INSPIRED CREATIVITY and light a jasmine/honeysuckle tea light in this Himalayan salt lamp holder I have (I've posted a photo of both the salt lamp and me sporting the tiara before so I won't bore you with them again in this post). Combining those 3 ritualistic elements gets my creative juices flowing and voila! The Muses are appeased and ideas begin to flow.
I know I'm not alone in this and many--if not most--writers have their own creativity rituals. That's mine and it works for me!
