Sometimes this is hard. Sometimes this is overwhelming. But the devastating thing is for a writer to not write. Frustration in momentary, writer’s block is temporary, but denying you talent? You are flirting with losing it forever.
There are only eight more days until this year is over! With that in mind, what are you looking forward to complete or start for the new year of 2021. What are you looking forward to? What have you been scared to start? What have you been scared to finish? What have you been dreaming of doing? If the idea has come back to you more than once, that is a sign that you need to write it down.
You can do it. Don’t fear the words–fear not writing them.
There is a peace when you complete work, and even when you begin it! Writing is one of those practices where you have peace when you get a something out of your head, and when you get something off of your writer’s to do list. Oh, that’s a thing! Be brave though! Be brave enough to put all your words down and stir them up! Start the work. Finish the work. The words are waiting on you.
With Love & Ink,
Note: Watch for the series and show on The Writers’ Block Podcast in January 2021 of the same title: The Writer’s To Do List.
Hopes and wishes do not fill pages, Oracles. Wishes are what we write down in order to fulfill them. Writing is equal parts talent and decision. Put both of those together today, right now and fill pages.
I love a good brainstorm! This is when all your creative energies surface together and crash into your imagination. It allows you to test your imagination’s limits–and stretch it in ways you had not thought about before.
A brainstorm is a writer’s best friend.
With any storm, they seem to come out of nowhere, and are more powerful than thought. You must remember that you wield the wind and rains which come in these storms. They should never overwhelm you, startle you or through you off balance!
Brainstorming is different from “The Flow” because the source is different. Brainstorming is internal while “The Flow” is external. Brainstorms come out of the blue, while “The Flow” has to be experienced, tapped into even. It’s a current more, while a brainstorm is a circuit. Embrace that and channel it.
