Writer’s Flow

Flow occurs when the writer is intensely concentrated and so completely involved in the process of creating something new that he doesn’t have any attention left to monitor anything else (not even hunger). It requires a balance of skill and challenge. The writer should have the necessary skill to accomplish the task at hand, yet still be challenged by the process of accomplishing it.

In order to enter flow, you must:

  • eliminate all distractions (no impulsive browsing, no phone checking, nothing!)
  • concentrate on the task at hand for at least 15minutes without interruption
