Meditation for Writers

As my life is ramping up stress-wise at my day job, my writing anxieties seem to be growing as well.

  • Will I be able to do this plot justice?
  • Are my characters interesting enough?
  • I know I published before, but what if I can’t get an editor to accept this novel?
  • Should I stick to shorts or try to write longer pieces?
  • Am I editing all the voice out of my novella?
  • What if no one likes my story?!

I swear I spend more time worrying about writing than I spend putting words on a page. This has got to stop.

When stress and anxiety get me down, I usually try to sit down for a few moments, focus on my breathing, let my mind quiet, and meditate. I was wondering, however, if recording a few phrases with a writerly bent might help calm some of my writing fears as well.

So I’m asking–

  • What do you fear?
  • What do you stress about at night?
  • Are your fears keeping you from writing?
