Ritual

I think we’ve all read helpful advice about establishing a place and ritual to block out the rest of the world when you go to write – a special cup, a special beverage. I actually had one of these at work, it was a special mug I used to drink my coffee and I never thought anything of it– until someone took the mug to wash it as a surprise for me.

I couldn’t work. I kept reaching for the mug to take a sip of coffee and it wasn’t there. I learned a lot about myself that day – and I’ve avoided rituals ever since – Seize the page! Write whenever you can!
