The attitude of openness is the single most important phase of writing.
It is the entry point where you, the writer, as a human being, form a relation with your writing and the prospective readers of your writing. Who is it who writes? Are you balanced? Can you breathe ideas as well as air? Is your mind quick and sharp? Is your heart open? Do you feel strong?
If the attitude you take is not proper, your writing becomes gimped. If your attitude is one of balanced openness, everything flows with ease.
So, do your thing! Draw upon your life experiences and your own place in the universe to make you feel at home and centered. Use whatever works for you to achieve the attitude of openness!
