Writing till you get that book done may involve some quirky habits like writing on the toilet. As unconventional and as shitty as this approach might sound, have you ever observed that loads of inspiration flood into your mind when you are on the potty or taking a shower?

Surprisingly, the onslaught of inspiration has a way of dwindling down or completely evaporating like a mist when you now settle down to get the writing done.

Here’s a tip. Have a handy notepad tucked away in the corner, preferably on the rack with your bathroom paraphernalia where you can quickly grab it to scribble those nutty ideas that pop into your head.

Of course, you are free to cut the unnecessary crap out.

Have fun and try it πŸ˜‰

    Hehe! I like this tip! I can imagine your readers all sat writing on the toilet πŸ˜›
    I usually have thoughts for writing when i am in the shower or when i am lying in bed, just before i go to sleep. i have started writing things down when i am in bed – this helps to get my thoughts out of my head, and also means that when I wake up I have lots of good ideas (well, most of them are good – there are sometimes some strange things too, that pop into my head before I sleep!) Thank you Jacqueline for your post. Carly

    I found you from your comments on Kingged.com and have to say I like the way you write.

    This is definitely a great tip. I haven’t tried this yet but should be fun putting pen to paper on the potty…

    PUN intended, πŸ™‚

    Never have had an idea while using the toilet, my ideas hit while taking a shower! They drip in like ghosts in the night and disappear quickly.
