The forgotten roots.
We depend on our roots to define who we are, but often we have forgotten important parts of our roots that have shaped us more than we know.
Writing is mind traveling.
Every time you write, you take yourself and your reader on a journey inside your mind. It's a lot like travel writing, actually.
Writing facilitates change.
Nothing facilitates change better than writing. It's a natural process to be in, and it's the very thing that makes you a writer.
The body bridge.
There is a special connection between physical exercise, our mind, and writing.
The metropolis dimension.
Your city is part of you, and you are part of it, even if you don't live in it. There is an unseen connection between you that helps you grow.
The fire of conflict.
Conflict is what forces something to change, and change is what storytelling, or life, is all about. Like it or not, you need conflict.
The fire speech.
The Danish tradition of burning a witch and giving a fire speech at midsummer keeps us mentally warm the rest of the year.
Writers tend to be hard on themselves, and sometimes you just need to remind yourself how great a writer you actually are.
Write with air.
Changing your way of writing is a good way of challenging yourself to find your voice. This exercise lets you play with the air-element.
Your inner child.
Your inner child and your voice have something in common that all writers share. You simply cannot be a writer without it.
