1. Write your goal out by hand everyday. Anything you will not write down by hand on paper, isn’t something you really want.
2. … Write out your goal with your non-writing hand everyday. This activates new neural pathways in your creative brain and tells your subconscious mind you’re serious.
3. Brainstorm different plans, however unrealistic they seem. It costs you nothing to imagine.
4. Read up on people that have had similar success. Even if their successful in a different industry, it feeds your brain with “like images” it can begin to create.
5. Stuck? Ask the Universe a question and then forget about it. Questions stir your brain to search for the answer. If it cannot answer, it will connect with Universal Intelligence to find an answer.
6. Do something that feels good. And repeat. We have desires because we think they will make us feel good. By feeling good now in whatever small way, we align with our dreams.
7. Fall asleep asking yourself one question: if my wishes were fulfilled how would I feel? Your subconscious mind assumes you want more of what you want when you fall asleep thinking about it as if it’s already done.

If you want to study creative writing–whether in high school, college, or outside of a typical school setting–you’ll undoubtably find yourself in a workshop.
Writing workshops can vary wildly, but the basic premise is this: one writer shares their work and silently listens as a room full of other writers judge it.
Depending on the instructions the people in that room are given, their experiences with workshopping, and their own writing know-how, workshops can either be be scary, unhelpful, humiliating, and downright depressing, or amazing experiences that fundamentally improve your ability to write.
I’ve been workshopping for ten years– in high school, undergraduate, and graduate classes, and in informal workshops among friends.
Today, I want to share what I’ve learned over those ten years, because I believe that there’s no reason for a workshop to ever be a bad experience.
