12 Tips for Writing When You’re Not Calm and the World is Burning

Great tips, especially in these trying times.

Novelty Revisions

1. Frequently check in with yourself as you work. Be honest. If you need a minute to just breathe, give yourself two.

2. Write about a happy memory, or write a story that just makes you feel good no matter how “predictable” or “cliche” you think it is.

3. Or, write about what’s happening around you if that makes you feel better. Sometimes we write about darkness because it helps remind us to look for the light.

4.  Set small goals. But don’t be too hard on yourself if you just don’t have it in you to reach them right now.
