I want you to take charge of your writing space. I want you to be completely cognizant of the space you create! The Flow–your access to this creative energy–is going to be dependent on how serious you are about creating it and maintaining it! One of thing to remember about maintaining such a space is that the magic you desire to create in it is up to you (again, this is a reference from King’s On Writing)!
There is a ruthlessness to writing, my Oracles! That ruthlessness is based in how tenacious you are about writing, and your success related to it! This dedicated space, deciding to dedicate a space, is YOURS! Do what you must in it and for it. If you need music to write? Get a playlist. If you write best in the morning, set an alarm. If you need to be warm to write, get that (a blanket, sheet, hoodie, etc)! You cannot let writing just happen to you our upon you! Sometimes, you must make that happen!
Be prepared to write when inspiration hits, as some say ‘when the iron is hot’. Also, be prepared to makes those irons hot.
The year is half over! Can you believe it? With that first 6 months gone, what are you going to set ahead of you or the remaining months? Writers are both bound and humbled by time. Make the decision today to be be humbled by it–to make the best use of it.
What would you need to maintain the writing and its perfection?
Now that you have that hot and fresh in your mind–scratch it and burn it.
Why? Here is why.
Writing time, schedules and circumstances may never be perfect. Ever. If there were, there would be more writers! There are even certain books of the Christian Bible that are/were written under times of war, panic and duress!
There may never be a perfect time to write, but you have to make the time you have perfect. Trust me, it’s possible.
