How Do You Get Into The Zone As A Writer?

    For me its nothing elaborate or anything. I just stare at my computer screen and start clicking away at the keyboard. At least, half the time I make some sense.

    you must be a natural..... I want to write some hubs, but I am enjoying the forum at the moment, a bit like when I was at school. loved the social side of it, but not the work ha ha......

    I don't know about being a natural or anything. But I can be lazy too, though. I'm writing a sequel to this over 600 page novel I wrote. Its supposed to elaborate as hell too. Even more than the first one. And it isn't writers block or anything. I basically know everything I'm supposed to write before I write it. Besides, I've made notes. But I'm still lazy though. I'm at the 200th page.

    Easy. I just stop talking/eating/whatever and the nonsense flows. I just don't write a lot of it down because I'm a slacker big_smile

    Oh and on that note, I'm going to do some work now. I do have a job - I just get distracted easily. I also have a rather delicious looking ... thing ... to eat so I'll be doing that too big_smile

    Sometimes I do procrastinate my writing. Like I will get up and go to the kitchen to do some dishes right in the middle of a sentence and then while I'm in the kitchen, I may as well get a drink of coke and something to eat. Then, I'll think to myself, oh yeah, I gotta finish writing that hub. For the most part though, once I start writing it just flows from my brain, to my finger tips, to my keyboard. My mind is usually elsewhere while I am typing and sometimes my mind comes back to what I am typing, reads it and says to myself, hey that is pretty good. I just write from the heart. A lot of times I never know what is going to be on that screen when I am finished. I usually never know how my writing is going to end until it is finished.

    I listen to music and start thinking about things that I want to write about and then it just comes to me.
