    ... or if you wanted to use proper English, you could say "lying down." Yeah, and the "phisicallity" thing. If you're going to write an article about writing (and I'm trying to be constructive here), shouldn't you use proper spelling and grammar?

    Stephen King once wrote, "Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work."

    I think that quote is important, and it can be applied to so much more than just writing.

    One of the things that gets the best writing I have out of me, is that I've learned to type with my eyes closed. I just somehow hook up my internal dialogue to my fingers and go. No distractions.

      He is, but he's retired from writing now (or at least so he says), so "had" is quite correct.

    These are interesting tips. I like the one about lying down, but honestly I would probably just fall asleep!

    It's just a bit too bad the creator misspelled 'physicality'.
