Jody shared a writing process he uses called
The name of the book on proprioceptive writing is “Writing the Mind Alive” by Linda Trichter Metcalf, Ph.D and Tobin Smith, Ph.D
The journal exercise that I’ve adapted from the book is as follows:
As you write each sentence, pay attention to any words or expressions you use that, upon reflection, seem to stand out as ambiguous or possibly containing deeper meanings.
Take that word and in the following sentence, delve deeper into what you think you mean by that word. For example, if you write “I’m really not happy with my work”, the word “happy” may stand out in your awareness. Begin the next sentence with “by ‘happy’, I mean...” and then write whatever comes to mind.
As you continue to write, keep an eye out for other similar words or expressions that stand out, and then explore them accordingly.
