In my research on dance, I have discovered parallels to writing. Eric Franklin in his book,
Conditioning for Danc
he, urges dancers to visualize a successful performance or move. Similarly if we see ourselves writing smoothly and deeply, it can help us to do just that.
Adapted from his book: “Observe your thought patterns and think positively. Are your thoughts supporting your role as a writer? Don’t dwell on your fears and anxieties; such thoughts are a recipe for disaster. Rather use images and sensations of where you want to be and how you want to write, combined with positive expectations and emotions. Seek out the teachers that help you on this tract. Don’t suppress problems; dwell on solutions. Put your best mental and physical energy at the service of your best image as a writer and watch yourself progress.”
Have you used visualization? It is used throughout the sports and business world because it works on producing outstanding results.
