How to Increase Your Energy to Write


Writers, do you struggle to find the time and energy to write? Who am I kidding – of course you do! Motivation, energy, and inspiration are both the bane and the backbone of a writer’s existence.

How to Increase Your Energy to WriteThe book I’m reading is called Choosing Easy World: A Guide to Opting Out of Struggle and Strife and Living in the Amazing Realm Where Everything is Easy, and it’s about living in a world where things – writing, publication, life – comes easy.

This doesn’t mean writers sit back and do nothing; it means they increase their “vibrational energy” until writing is easy, effortless, and enjoyable.





I recently received a question from a reader who is struggling to write. And, I’m “coincidentally” reading a book about opting out of struggle and raising your vibrational energy to a higher level, where life is easy. One of the best tips on how to increase your energy to write is to figure out what inspires you to write. If you’re discouraged, read Inspiration for Women Writers.

Here’s what my reader says: “I’ve always been interested in writing and have written a few poems. I love books and they way they make me feel, and I’ve always wanted to write one. My problem is that I have no idea where to start. Writing poetry is one thing. It’s less daunting and doesn’t require as much time and effort. I worry that I won’t be able to write anything worth reading. As a result, whenever I try to think of a good storyline or plot for a book, I come up blank. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas or advice on where I should start?” ~ Cirsten, on How to Find the Courage to Write.

How to Increase Your Energy to Write

Think of Cirsten’s (or any writer’s) struggle with “writer’s block.” That’s living in Difficult World – a place no writer has to be.

“How you perceive a problem – or a set of problems – is completely dependent on where you are on the vibrational scale,” writes Julia Rogers Hamrick in Choosing Easy World. “The lower you are, the darker and more hopeless things look, and the more muddled your thinking. The higher you go, the brighter things are, the more hopeful things look, the clearer your thinking, and the more obvious the solution becomes.”

Living in Easy World means you don’t have to fight for what you want, don’t have to sacrifice, don’t have to work against the forces working against you.

When you live and write in Easy World, you know there’s enough to go around. Enough writing assignments, literary agents, book publishers, and writing motivation!

Enough energy and ideas to write a thousand books.

Here are a few tips for increasing your vibrational energy (and make writing easy!).

Allow your writing to happen naturally

“Allowing is the single most important aspect of your Easy World experience,” writes Hamrick in Choosing Easy World. “Without allowing, you are not in Easy World, but back in Difficult World. Allowing means that you have not only dropped resistance…and that you are no longer trying to figure things out or make them happen or otherwise control things.”

How does this make writing easy? Instead of forcing yourself to come up with article ideas, good storylines, or fascinating plots, try letting your mind wander while you walk, shower, or do the dishes. Allow ideas to come to you instead of chasing them.

Relearn the art of flow – of letting success and creativity find you

I used to think that making a good living as a freelance writer was difficult…until I started hiring writers for Quips and Tips. Then, I realized that strong, talented, motivated writers are few and far between! Honestly, if you’re a good writer – passionate, creative motivated, and disciplined – you will succeed as a freelancer.

How to Increase Your Energy to Write

Are you struggling to be a writer, or start writing? You may be on the wrong path. I don’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t be a writer — I mean you may be aiming for the wrong goals. You’re living in Difficult World.

The trick is to unlearn the habits of Difficult World, and re-learn how to live in Easy World. Hamrick says we need faith. We need to believe things will work out better and faster if we align ourselves with the flow of energy, rather than try to grab things that aren’t ours. Increasing your energy to write is involves finding your creative writing spark instead of desperately trying to “be a writer.”

Learn how to increase your writing energy – your life force

Learning how to make writing easy is easier felt than explained. Think of the last time you got lost in your writing – a blog post that flowed effortlessly, an article that practically wrote itself, a fun query letter that won you an assignment. That’s when your vibrational energy was highest – you were in flow.

Now, think of when writing is as struggle, a dark place, a lot of work and effort. That’s your energy at its lowest…and perhaps that’s not the type of writing you’re meant to do. Or, you need to approach it in a different way.

If you’re struggling to write and you’re tired of reading all the freelance and other writing books, take a look at Choosing Easy World: A Guide to Opting Out of Struggle and Strife and Living in the Amazing Realm Where Everything is Easy.

    Hi, Laurie~

    I JUST now saw this as I was looking through some Google results. I’m delighted to see that you have found Choosing Easy World to be helpful! And that you’re sharing it with others!

    It’s so true that Easy World principles are really empowering for writers. I dip into Difficult World still with writing and when I breathe, relax, allow and enjoy, the magic definitely unfolds! And you probably read in the acknowledgments of Choosing Easy World that getting a literary agent and publisher were amazingly easy for me when they’re supposed to be as easy as winning the lottery jackpot. All because I kept choosing Easy World.

    Hmmmm…maybe I need to write an Easy World guide for writers…

    Again, thanks for helping more people know about Easy World!!!

    Love, Joy, Ease,

    Julia

    Hi Eric,

    Can you give me an example of a detail that breaks your flow? That may help me offer tips to make writing easier for you.

  • Eric

    I’m just starting out writing and I’ve been writing drafts for a novel I desperately want to write. But again and again, I run into details that break my flow. When I write a fight sequence, I come up with ideas so easily and instinctively that my fingers can’t move fast enough. But how can I overcome those details that break my flow?

    KaaVonia ~ There’s something stopping you from writing fiction…maybe it’s your plot, characters, or theme? I don’t know. But, the idea is to find ways to be in “easy world” when you write, so it flows!

    There are no brick walls in easy world…the trick is finding your way to that place.

    I wish I had easy tips, but all I can do is encourage you to practice the specific strategies Hamrick teaches in her book. Or, keep trying different things, such as changing your plot line or characters, until your writing flows.

    Happy writing,
    Laurie
