👋 Hey Friends,
in order to gratify a great English lesson I had this week I today want to make you familiar with the idea of automatic writing.
It's not necessarily a concept linked to the topic of astronomy, maths and science itself but rather to finding something to write about. This could be your own short story, your own ideas about philosophy or even your personal perspective of reality. Automatic writing gives freedom of creating and writing about what you care about and that in itself has many positive implications. The concept of bringing your ideas to life is what symbolises the great freedom of writing. Writing changes your perspective on things and how you interact with reality in your everyday life.
And because of the importance of writing and because of the many implications it can have for your life, I would strongly suggest you give it a try. However, where do you start? And that's where automatic writing comes into play. Whether you want to start writing a short story, a philosophical discussion or even an academic paper, just start to write something. For all of you who want to try automatic writing, here's a quick guide on how to start:
- Set an Intention: State your intention or question for the automatic writing session. This can help guide your thoughts.
- Start Writing: Begin writing without thinking too much about what you're putting on paper. Let your thoughts flow freely, and don't worry about grammar or coherence.
- Don't Judge or Edit: Avoid self-criticism or editing while writing. Just let the words come naturally.
- Stay Open: Be open to any ideas, thoughts, or words that come up, even if they seem unrelated at first.
- Keep Writing: Continue writing for a set amount of time or until you feel you've received the guidance or information you were seeking.
- Review and Reflect: After the session, read what you've written and reflect on the content. You may find insights or ideas you weren't consciously aware of.
And the most important thing of all is Practice makes perfect. Automatic writing isn't about writing a masterpiece right from the start, but rather about training your brain to think like an author. By regularly writing you train your mindset about the world around you because you comprehend your personal ideas at a high and focused level.
That is what gives automatic writing its brilliance. By just going for it you not only train your brain, and create a strong mindset like an author but you also get clearance about your own ideas and thoughts with a genuine understanding of who you are and what you like in your life.

✍️ Quote of the week
"We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect."
And here is another quote from one of my famous authors, Stephen King, on a famous paradigm:
"If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that."
