“…there’s two kinds of practice. There’s the competitively oriented kind where you run drills to improve, like soccer.
And then there’s the process-oriented kind, where you mindfully return to it over and over, for the sake of the experience itself, like yoga.
If you want to be a better writer, you have to practice like you practice yoga.”
Why Writing is Like Yoga, by Emily Wenstrom, available at thewritepractice.com
I always refer to this podcast as a writing practice. It’s intentional. I use it with the same meaning as those who practice yoga. Anytime we sit down to write, we are practicing the craft, or we should be.
The Writing Promptcast is a freewriting practice using multiple word prompts, spaced out over the course of 10 minutes. You should listen to the podcast while you write.
