The Microsoft Bing definition or Mindfulness.
- the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something: “their mindfulness of the wider cinematic tradition”
- a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
How I apply it to writing literature.
- I take a story and investigate as many facets as possible.
- In order not to become long-winded, I have learned to pair my language down to the minimum. No adverbs, few adjectives but super action.
Try it out with my 1st person romantic comedy thriller, Someone Tell Me What Is Going On. My heroes and heroines accept feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations, or suffer the consequences.
Get the mindfulness habit.
