Involve your senses: touch

My desk is filled with tactile toys to help me in my pondering process. I have gem stones, some large, some really small, a zen egg, a stress ball, various notepads etc.

Touch is essential for the pondering process that goes hand in hand with writing.

I sit with a stone between my palms and roll it around. Or, when I grab a flat stone, I twirl it between my fingers.

This simple act is (most of the time) all I need to get started with my writing.

I think it is because activating touch really helps me to clear my mind.

What tactile things can you add to your workspace to help you to keep the words coming?
