The Secret to Meditation

How’s that for a bold title. And now we only have 120 words left!

Quickly: meditation for writers involves following the breath. You follow the breath, you settle into concentration, you release the ego, you open up to your inner prompter spooling out the words into your mind just as you become conscious of them.

Good? So the secret to meditation is your posture, specifically one thing: opening your bottom belly. Find the place two inches below your navel which is the lowest your breath goes. Below your chest where you hyperventilate or fight on Facebook, below your upper belly where you wax poetic but are still somewhat on the defensive.

Find the bottom belly. Stay with it. And now write what comes to you in the order in which it comes to you.

    I’ve long wondered how you drop in deep and are so present so consistently in your writing no matter what is going on. Thanks for sharing.
