We want to start three practices: the Practice of Memory, the Practice of Imagination and the Practice of Compassion. Good memory work should be done everyday as it takes consistency to recall forgotten events. Imagination fuels our passion for writing, even when we compose a short composition such as a vignette, a bio-sketch, or a short story. The practice of compassion is for ourselves – it's not about the other person. Be kind to yourself as a writer and don't allow self criticism to stop your creative flow.
