They listen to that inner voice. -This is the single most important aspect of intuition. The inner voice, your gut, or the character's gut directing their actions. Does it always make things right, no not at all? When we take chances in life, are they always sure. Does our gut tell us when we should heed that inner feeling? “Run save yourself.”
Did you ever experience a feeling you had difficulty explaining to yourself or fully understanding? You might not have listened to that inner voice and damn if you didn’t screw up. The common one is when we leave the house or apartment and we’re halfway to the car when something is bothering you. You forgot something, but you don’t know what it is. However later in the day it hits you. What is that? Something inside is telling you to pay attention, it may save your life.
You control your characters. You help them make decisions even bad ones. If one is sure of every outcome to every challenge, sorry to say, you are not a writer just yet. Sometimes writing is like running into a dark tunnel without a flashlight and your inner voice is telling you, “run you have nothing to lose and whole lot to gain.”
They take time for solitude.-Writers love solitude. Their minds wander to places and think of things that most people cannot. Writing fiction is not by committee, that is unless you have several personalities upstairs in your head, which is not bad either if they all work together.
They create. - Of course, people who react often with their intuition happen to also be creative people. They stretch the boundaries and try new things.
They observe everything- What is a simple walk for other people can be the beginning, middle or ending for a writer's story. They see everything and imagine all things. Rocks move, children have powers, animals talk, castles in the sky, rivers that flow up hill. Everything and anything is a possibility.
They connect deeply with others. - Since writing is not really a team sport, writers are intuitive when it comes to other people but they are not usually the life of the party. They are loners who observe others. Most writers have a very small core of close friends, maybe two or three at most.
They pay attention to their dreams.-Some say dreams are extensions of one's realities. Possibly, but dream they do. People who are writers daydream far more than most other people. It is obvious, the reason it is their job to daydream.
They enjoy plenty of down time. - I'm not going to agree with this only because there is no down time if one depends on their imagination. That is on hyper drive constantly. There may be times when a writer is not mentally beating himself or herself up if you want to call that down time.
They mindfully let go of negative emotions. - Let us just say that writers or all creative people who depend creativity to put food on the table are far more emotional than most people. All emotions are deeply embedded in creative people. Some unfortunately are destructive.
Writers have several inner tools at their disposal which need to be cultivated if they are to be successful writing entertaining fiction.
If your gut is screaming at you to start writing no matter what the circumstances then listen to what it is saying.
