We’ve talked lately about finding the joy in writing and creativity. Changing our ways of thinking is one way. We should stop talking about writing as though it were our punishment. We can also teach ourselves to find appreciate the sense of satisfaction and fulfillment it can bring.

Close your eyes and visualize a time or place when you felt most at ease with your creativity or when you felt that you were achieving a high level of success or excellence. Take some deep breaths and enjoy that feeling. Don’t rush this exercise. Sit with your creative joy for a bit.

You can feel this all the time. It takes practice, but you can find the joy in writing any time you seek it.
