Most writers I know are aware of the little black devil who sits on your shoulder and tells you what you've just written is no good. So how to defeat him? We need to
conjure that dreamlike, imaginative side of our brain that writes without judgement. One way of developing this is the morning page. Before you do snything else in the
morning, sit with paper and pen and write. Write whatever comes into your head without stopping to question its worth. After all, nobody's going to see what you write
except you. It may look to you like nonsense sometimes but if you cultivate this habit asnd keep at it, you will discover, looking back on your pages, that ideas have emerged,ones you can develop.
