Here is an excercise that I always do when I am broken hearted, drowning in the waters of depression, breathing the fires of fury, or simply suffering from writer's block. It is very easy to do and perhaps the most relaxing thing that a writer could ever do. All you need is the metaphorical Pen and a little time to just let it all flow out. I usually do this with a pencil and paper but it will work just fine with a keyboard and screen. I will guide you through the process.
Close your eyes and allow all your energy to power the metaphorical Pen, for this is where your journey begins. Now just begin writing. Don't think, don't stop, don't worry about grammer or rhythm or methods or themes, just let it flow. You will soon break into a trance, the writer's trance, so sacred, so coveted, so greatly craved by all. You will feel like you floating off into a dream as all your worries, frets, problems, and emotions are released and displayed in the fabulous form of words. I have felt the relief and seen my own creations through this magnicifent process. But now it is your time to begin your quest. You will be amazed at the insight and beauty that you will discover, both within yourself and flying across the page...
Let the dance of the writer's trance begin.
My heart is my totem, a blackened beating taunt that soaks the Page with its prevail. Its blood becomes my ink as I stab the Pen into it. I heave forward with my hollow chest, entranced in my decay, sorry to say, that I am a writer of Darkness now.
