“The writing life is defined by the succession of choices you make, primary among them whether or not you will write. You honor your writing space by entering it with this mantra: ‘I am ready to work.’ You enter, grow quiet, and vanish into your writing.” A Writer’s Space: Make Room to Dream, to Work, to Write by Eric Maisel
Do you have any rituals you do when it comes to writing? Like, above, do you have a mantra? Some writers had some interesting rituals, you can read about 20 of them here. My favorite, by far, was that Victor Hugo would ask his valet to take his clothes and hide them somewhere, thus forcing him to stay naked in his home and work. Now that's dedication.
