Daily Writing Habit
Set aside some quiet time each day for writing, and consider using guided meditations or other visualization techniques to help you tap into your imagination. Set aside a specific time each day to write, and set aside a dedicated space for writing.
Start with a clear idea of what you want to create, and allow yourself to get lost in the world you’re building. Focus on creating vivid and imaginative landscapes, characters, and creatures. Let your mind wander and don’t be afraid to take chances and experiment with new ideas.
