‘Freeing the Writer Within’ by Natalie Goldberg was one of the many books I used to inspire me. Natalie noted a connection between the physical act of moving the pen and the heart that moves it. It helps get away from the rational side of the brain which can be overly critical during the creative process. This process works for me though I know many writers who type straight on to a laptop or computer. Ultimately, it is worth experimenting to discover what works and when.
