High Intensity Resistance Writing
Resistance is a fierce ability every writer cultivates
It is a practice for flexing creative muscles that should
be honed every day for at least twenty minutes
The higher the intensity resistance
the higher the creative output
Writers need six-to-eight cups of curiosity a day
to keep confidence hydrated
Stretching fingers and forearms
twisting spines and sciatic nerves
is also beneficial during
peak productive spurts
The key to a daily positive process
comes from a simple but rigorous work-out regimen:
Sleep. Stretch. Sit. Resist.
Stand. Scream. Write. Resist
Laugh. Eat. Write. Resist.
Walk. Write. Read. Resist.
Weep. Focus. Research. Resist.
Write. Write. Write. Resist
Read. Revise. Growl. Resist.
Following a high intensity resistance writing
routine effectively increases word count
Group exercise is highly recommended
for sanity and sanctuary
Resistance is a necessary part of
the writing process and should be
partnered with patience – though
procrastination is wont to intrude
it too deserves a rung on the high
intensity writing ladder of creative living
Also chocolate cake coffee tea and the
complaint department (which is always
open even during a pandemic)
Happy weekend! Keep up the great resistance!
