This was awesome, Matt. Your story about your grandfather really hit me. When I was a kid in Little League, my dad taught me positive visualization to get better at hitting a baseball. I never got any better at hitting, but I adopted the visualization techniques to all stages of my screenwriting career and now into my path as a new(ish) fiction writer. I'm a bit older than you, but I wonder if there was something about that generation when we were kids, where people were learning positive visualization and passing it on. Thanks so much for sharing!
So refreshing to see an practical, meaningful, original exercise that could truly advance the ball for a writer. Well done!
It is interesting to wonder if it was a generational thing! I'm glad to hear it's an important part of your process too. It's really important to me and mine.
Thank you, Debra!
