The Kind of Days for Which I Write

Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love. ~Rumi
----------

This was my writing meditation for today, and it worked.

I focused on the joy of writing, of 'fading out' myself and my issues, and letting the characters take on color and light. 1200 words leaped on to the page, and came alive.

Today was the kind of day for which I write.

  1. I would love to have one of those days. As it is work has been keeping me way too busy. Sigh. I can't wait to get back to actual writing.

  2. It's been so long since I've written any fiction I've almost forgotten what that is like.

  3. 1200 is a lot. Sounds like it's working well. I'll have to try thinking of it that way and just... fade. TFS!

  5. I used to be so good at 'fading out' as my family will attest, but the holidays and kids home from college have put me into 'reality mode' for far too long. Tomorrow is my first full day to write in a month. I do hope I can slip into story mode and get sometthing done.

    1. Yes, Slipping Sliding away is a spontaneous thing some days, and on others, I try in vain.

    1. Mornings work for me. But I've found that to be a writer, I must be able to write anytime and anywhere.

  7. I can relate to Tammy. My kids were home from college for the holidays. When they come home, my schedule is thrown off, making it harder to write. I do it, but it's a struggle to stick to my schedule. Now that the house is quiet again, I can get back into the grove - until the next time they come home. LOL!

  8. My friend,

    And the passion of those words that leapt out, danced with joy and inspiration. The magic, the power of the written word is in your heart and soul.

    In kindness,

    Gary

  9. Yesterday, I got so lost in my writing, I almost forgot the one I really love (my preschooler) - I barely made it to preschool on time. I'm going to start setting an alarm. Glad you had a great writing day.

  12. Yes, I know and love this feeling. My goal for 2013 is to feel more of this and less of...well, the opposite. :-)
