August 2022: ASPIRATION

One of the things which will propel you as a writer aside from the blank pages, is the dream of what those pages will represent.

Blank pages are open dreams, dear writer.

You are able to create the worlds you want, and like you want that.

But the thing most crucial is to remember is that this journey is yours. It belongs to you, can be dictated by you.

While discouragement is real, and this journey is hard, it is not impossible.

Your rocket fuel is always going to be your aspiration, your thoughts, your dreaming.

Don’t let yourself down.

Encouragement Pages-08/03/2022

There is magic in what you do.

Never think that there isn’t! There is a dedication to creativity. And just as Lady Gaga said, “There is a discipline to passion (we will explore more of that during Back to Writing Month).”

Creativity is a skill and a power.

Never think what you are doing is useless! If nothing else, you are doing for one person: you.

With Love & Ink,

August 2022: ASPIRATION

Writing is like dreaming on paper.

And with that dreaming, we are able to create the life that we want to see around us or in the world. We are able to provide or create windows, doors, and mirrors!

Windows to expose to the world to what you want them to see.

Mirrors allow you to see yourself in the world.

Doors allow you to create the world you desire and put yourself in it!

There is a power to harnessing creativity–and that is aspiration.

July 2022-Harness Creativity

I often think of creativity as the fuel that allows you to play with the invisible. It is the access to the invisible that allows you to create what will be visible. One of the joys of being a writer is being able to play with reality! We get to create the reality we want! This is why the Arts are incredible and always need those whom participate to be heard, seen and valued!

Creativity is a power source that unlocks the world and those therein!

Remember: If you can harness what you can see (even if only you can see it!), you can share it with the world.

For this month, I want to leave you with these 10 things to help you to harness your own creativity:

1.) Read more.

2.) Make sure you’re getting adequate sleep.

3.) Journal.

4.) Find a writing time that works for you.

5.) Keep a dream journal, or do morning pages.

6.) Walk away from the work when you get stuck.

7.) Exercise or stretch.

8.) Natural light is a mood booster! Open a window!

9.) Make a story machine .

10.) Save your flash fiction–it may be groundwork for a world later on.

Remember: You can do it. You really can!
