Creative is needed for so many tasks – especially writing and doing some other artistic work. However creative requires free-flowing thinking from brain. It requires the harmony between your left brain and right brain to work together. So how to get into this zen-state?

Remember, your right brain is the hub of creative thought, so if that side of your brain is controlling the writing, you’ll know because you won’t really be able to perseverate on one aspect of your central topic for too long. In fact, you probably won’t even have a central topic.
