Top 5 Configurations You Need To Help You Work Smarter!



Creative writing is hard work.

You usually write intricately woven fantasy worlds stories. And it takes a lot of visualization and planning.

Not to mention the fact that you need to structure your thoughts well.

Today we are going to help you make this job easier. We have 5 configurations it will make your creative writing process a snap.

Follow them and enjoy amazing results!

# 1 – Get an office.

Creative writing is difficult when you are surrounded by people, noise, and other responsibilities.

If you are writing home, we recommend that you wait until your home is empty (unless you live alone).

On the other hand, if you have family, you will need to take your writing elsewhere.

Why?

You cannot afford to be disturbed by distractions.

You see, the secret to good creative writing is to achieve a
“State of flux”. You want to be in a mode where pictures and words flow smoothly through your mind.

And that doesn’t happen with distractions.

So you will need a quiet place. And it will usually be an office (or a coworking space)!

# 2 – Find tools to help you connect.

We mentioned that a state of flux is necessary for good writing. And there are many ways to do this …

You can start with the music. Many people connect well with their thoughts when they listen to rhythms.

Others need a drink. You might be the kind of person who loves sip while typing.

Find the tools that help you better connect with your work. Then be sure to configure them in your environment!

# 3 – Collect sources of inspiration.

Sometimes you will find yourself in a position where you have a hard time writing.

Some call it “author’s block.” Others call it a lack of inspiration.

But most of the time, it’s a lack of ideas. Your well of creative plans, story progression, and character development may be exhausted.

And in these situations, we recommend reading.

Search for your favorite literature.

If you write sci-fi stories, be sure to keep a supply of the work of your favorite authors nearby (it’s better if this hiding place is digital).

Or, if you write romance novels, put aside some of the best romance stories you’ve read!

Use them as food for thought. Let them fuel your imagination and draw on the powerful models of literature!

# 4 – Don’t forget the pictures.

This especially applies if what you write is posted on blogs.

Many people need a few photos to check their concentration. And when it comes to photos, there are elements of Hourly and aesthetic.

You have to show the photos after the right lines and create the right impact.

In addition, aesthetically, the photos must be of high quality.

So you will need photo sizes that work well with the page structure (you may need to compress images for this).

Important tip.

Don’t overuse the images. And don’t choose something with too much detail.

Choose subtle images. After all, the whole point of creative writing is to give readers the opportunity to exercise their imaginations!

# 5 – Get a second opinion.

Do you have a friend who enjoys your kind of writing?

If so, have them read your work. Take note of their reactions and let them criticize you.

Obviously, this is a several days (sometimes several weeks) to treat. You need to give your reviewers time to give their opinion.

Give them the opportunity to soak up your work, while sharing their thoughts!

What if I don’t like criticism?

Few people do. But criticism tolerance is a muscle you need to exercise.

It’s part of what it means to be an artist. What you present triggers thoughts, questions and conversations! And always remember that the better your art, the more conversation there is – so criticism is something to embrace!
