Uncle Chuckie had an exercise that really helped me figure out what I should be aiming for when structuring.
Take a piece of white paper (I use computer paper), sit somewhere comfortable, and close your eyes. Start to visualize a simple shape, like a circle, a cross, something basic so you can hold the image in your mind for a few minutes.
When you’ve good a good visualization going, open your eyes and look at the paper. The aura of what you were visualizing should be visible against the paper. Alternatively, you could just gaze at the paper from the get go and start to build the aura with your eyes open.
Once you get that down, it’s recommended you start to play with colors and movement. I know his site is linked around here a lot, and for good reason! Check his stuff out, at the very least, some of his basic exercises. They’re total gold.[/quote]
Was this in one of his books?
