What can you say in Six Sentences?

Writing is like any exercise, the more you do it, the better you seem to get at it.

I came across a brilliant site recently that is ideal for exercising your Creative Muse. It’s called Six Sentences and takes submissions, posting the best, of short pieces written, well, in Six Sentences.

They also have an excellent Ning community site.

In the Blue Peter tradition, here’s one I submitted earlier – The Power of Six

Unleash your Book with iMindMap

I have been mind mapping for many years and it has really helped me increase my creativity and productivity – as well as giving me unprecedented clarity over what I am working on.

Although I am comfortable with maintaining my creativity while working on a computer, for many people, the very use of a keyboard, screen and mouse, switches the left brain into dominant mode – thus suppressing the creative right hemisphere.

For this reason, on my workshops and in the Home Study online course, I recommend that, at least, the early maps are done with paper and pen.

Imagine my surprise when I came across the latest version of iMindMap from Tony Buzan. At last, mind mapping software which doesn’t constrain the user to a rigid framework. It uses a clever vector graphics engine so that the map is not limited by the technology or the screen in a rectilinear fashion. As such, it can be introduced much earlier in the creative writing process.

For authors who have taken the Home Study course, if you purchase iMindMap, I will send you a free set of mind map templates to help you plan, execute and manage your book project.

You can get a free trial and purchase iMindMap here

mastertrainerlogo_175Latest News: Nov ’08: I have now qualified as a Master Trainer for the software.

I am running a series of training courses in the South East of England in 2009 – for dates and booking and to find out how to Change Your Mind, click here

Creative Writing with Meditation Machines

Apocryphally Salvador Dali used to put a spoon under his elbow around siesta time. We he nodded off and it clattered to the floor, he’d awaken and paint what was on ‘his mind’.

Nowadays artists, writers and musicians can use modern technology in the form of Meditation Machines to achieve the same result in a much more controlled manner.

Tom Evans is using meditation machines to teach authors how to get their conscious minds out of the way so that they can tap into their unconscious mind and the collective consciousness.

Many people have experienced this mode of thinking as a light bulb moment. The easiest and cheapest way to tap into so-called light bulb moments is to meditate regularly. For many people though the thought of meditating each day though seems like an anathema in their modern day lives. How can you waste 20-30 minutes of an already busy day?

In actual fact regular meditation makes the rest of your day go so well that you can save hours of time and it has been proven to extend life expectancy too. You will get the time invested back in spade fulls.

That said, many people have trouble getting their mind to be quiet and might not know when they are actually in a deep meditative state. This is where using a  Meditation Machine comes in.

Using a progressive programme of gentle exercises, the user is taken into deeper and deeper states from waking beta to relaxing alpha and deeper theta induction.

In the latter state, where the brain is in theta, the mind is connected with the collective consciousness and creativity just flows.

“Using these techniques, I have got students to come up with the most amazing titles for their books and to get whole chapters as a complete vision in one session,” says Tom. “The resulting productivity is amazing.”

Writer’s block becomes a thing of the past and associated fears of rejection and unworthiness seem to dissipate like magic too as a bonus. Getting better sleep and other health benefits make it a no-brainer.

While it is common for most meditation to occur with eyes closed, the Mind Spa machine also allows you to enter the meditative state with your eyes open. This equivalent state is one you can enter while out walking – but you can be working at your computer at the time on your best seller.

“The brilliant thing about meditation machines is that you can use them at any time during the day for a quick top up or injection of inspiration,” says Tom, “and they are useful for experienced and non-experienced meditators.”
