How Writing is Like Sex (more stuff at http:sj-powers/com/)

Woman at desk thinking

Writing is like sex, and I can prove it.

- You need to be in the mood to get inspired to write.

- While some writers are in the mood to write every day, your mood waxes and wanes.

- When you’re in the writing ‘zone,’ your wild (i.e. subconscious) mind takes over.

- When your wild mind takes over, you keep your hand moving.

- When your hand keeps moving and the writing flows, everything around you drops away.

- When everything around you drops away, you forget about eating, drinking, sleeping.

- When you can’t forget you’re hungry, thirsty or tired, you’re probably faking it….
