A small list of exercises to write freely and overcome stress and anxiety
  1. Free write, A LOT
    Don't worry about how bad it may look. You're the only editor in this scenario. After a couple of bad drafts, you'll soon come up with better ideas and write consistently.
  2. Say what you want to write out loud
    This actually helps to calm your mind. You may be overwhelmed with numerous ideas after reading so many references but once you start talking, you'll get a better idea what to write on paper or text.
  3. Accept criticism; avoid negativity
    Criticism includes receiving things like grammar correction, paragraph revision and omitting repetitive sentences. Negativity includes receiving statements that discard you from writing. It may even come from once close friends. If you're receiving a check for your work, you're doing some right. Just cut lose ends.
