It's April 1st, time for another Insecure Support Group post. If you would like to learn more about it, visit this link:
Do you have any rituals that you use when you need help getting into the ZONE? Care to share?
Well, I don't do anything special but look over notes if I have them. The outlines and notes help me see where I'm going. Then I'm staring into space for awhile. I noticed this strange habit recently. I think this is only because I now have a problem with concentrating. I noticed some strange behaviours I never had before prior to my surgery, which effects my writing. This is why I do need something to help
I first go to my playlist though and have to plan out what I'll do for the project I will work on for that day. The music helps me get into a specific mind set in order to write in a particular tone. This is only for orchestral music, which I love for Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror projects. When it comes to my other music, it is universal but still I suppose gets me into a "zone". No, it's not orchestral music. I have different playlist that helps me get into writing. All the other ones are international/world music. The lyrics no longer have to relate to my writing. It just have to be my preference of music as I write. I think my music is my main source for this question.
