Automatic writing seems o be a lot more work than the name suggests.
As usual I had been thinking way too much about this.
Some interesting reading about versions of this, psychics can use a similar process to channel spirits etc.
I had a few goes, i think maybe i was channeling Dr Zeuss as i just ended up writing words that rhymed, then tried letting go completely thinking of nothing and letting my hand write. Interesting patterns looks like streams of letters but nothing I could put into words.
