Encouragement Pages-07/24/2020, Regaining Focus (Part 3)

Hold on.

Take a deep breath.

Having an unfinished work is not the end of the world! Being distracted or overtaken by life which stopped you from finishing a work is a not a cause for alarm! It happens!

The toughest part will ways this, “Can I pick up where I left off?”

Which really translates to “Do I/Can I have the focus to write this?”

With refocusing your energy, you can.

With idenifying what you need to support your writing, you can.

If you make time to write a little a time, you can.

It is not impossible.

It’s a journey.

The words will be you map and light.

Write yourself where you need to be.

Think about what you’re thinking about.

Writing will always involve you being aware of what you have put your imagination to work on. This type of focus will either free your or paralyze you.

Take the limits off your imagination.

Think about what would happen if you just…believed in yourself–and wrote. Just wrote…

Your talent is the coin of the realm, a saving grace to the gloom of a bland world.

Flex the muscles, dear ones.

Write the pages, word by word.

Don’t fear the letters your hands have mastered!

Don’t fear the words that may be misspelled!

Fear the destruction of the worlds which will be destroyed if you do not write them down.

Fear NOT writing more than writing. It will always be more scary to begin than to end.

With Love & Ink,

Upheaval is when writers do their best work. In doing the best work, remember where you joy is. Remember to write from where the joy is–locate it!

Once your locate it, you can never lose it.

As Maya Angelou said, “Every storm runs out of rain.”

And sometimes, just sometimes you pen can map the storms–before they come.

What are you waiting for?

There is a need within you to write, so why on Earth are you ignoring it? You have worlds within you waiting to be shown and explored!

Be brave and explore them…one word at a time.
