Have a post-shower writing session

If you are looking for the perfect time to write something, anything, do it right after you get out of the shower.

Whether you are a blogger, author, sales person or just a casual writer, finding inspiration is half the battle. Over the last year or so, I’ve developed a simple system to generate it chemically (and naturally).

Right before you take your shower, think about something you want to write or a subject you’d like to write about. As you shower, just let the idea roll around in your head. A hot shower naturally helps your body produce DHEA, so you’ll find that your brain/mind makes synapse connections in this environment.

When an idea comes to you, say it out loud. Repeat it several times to find an anchor statement of inspiration. Right after you get out, find a handheld recorder or notepad and write for a few minutes. Let it flow, and don’t try and edit.

If you do this everyday, you’ll find that you will come up with great ideas, great phrases and your natural writing voice. Always think of shower time as creative time, instead of it being a chore.

I’m not the only author that does/did this. I’ve read that Kurt V, Jim Morrison and even Hunter S. Thompson all received divine inspiration in the shower. The question for you is, are you going to write yours down?
