I found the best way for me to write is to make it instant, improvisational.
Don't force it - just sit, fire up your editor or grab pen and paper. Then, let the feeling of writing well up inside you - then just let it emerge. Don't even wait for any themes or ideas to fully form.
I just get this beautiful feeling that the words have to come out - then the words and sentences just pour out. You can always go back, clean up, and edit later.
This beats procrastination and it just feels good!
Its is such a beautiful feeling to instant Zen write - I just feel joy. Your head gets dizzy, the warm blood flows through your neck and brain.
Some sessions produce better writing than other sessions - but each session is valuable.
You always want your writing to be new - bleeding edge. Go where the moment takes you. You don't want your writing to necessarily be "better" than the previous writings. You just want to write - no expectations.
