Writing Hormesis/ Mimesis

Homesis: I felt happy after taking a cold shower. My composure helped me write better. I could remember significant events. I was able to see the bright side of things in my current circumstances. I was able to generate fresh concepts that I had not previously considered. I felt invigorated and more productive. I was able to focus better and write more quickly. I experienced very little writer’s block. I was inspired and driven to carry on working.

Mimesis: Finding a piece of writing or an article that resonates with me and the story I am writing about was difficult. My main goal was to remember something I had forgotten about my writing. Thus, I don’t think I’ll be able to write using this technique.
