Browsing through Pinterest today, I stumbled upon an amazing blog written by Kris on her “allume – real light living” blog space.
I am astounded by the simplicity of her approach. She is a dedicated writer and mother and spouse – not in that order! She has already published a book and achieved that goal! I am so very jealous of her achievement(s).
So, it is time to make my own commitment to writing . . . I have been driven to write and completely unfocussed as to what to write. With my multitudes of journals and writing spaces I have, one would imagine writing would come easy to me. Instead, I start to write and it sounds the same every time . . . “Today I feel ___. I did ____ today. I want to do___ and I am so tired of ____.”
So back to the basics:
– write every morning! even if there is little to say – fill at least 2 pages (thanks Julia Cameron from “The Artist’s Way”)
– get off the internet and use the computer as the tool it is!
– don’t play games – write instead
– plan to complete a project – any project – in a reasonable length of time
– tell someone my plan and be accountable
– no more negative self talk about my writing – be positive and upbeat – tell myself that I am doing great
– limit interruptions and set a specific time that works for me, when my mojo is strong
– ask spirit to guide my writings
So there! I am going to start (or finish) a project that is important to me. I am not going to write a book today . . . that is not reasonable. Could I write a story about my spiritual journey over the last 3 years? That just may be possible. But for now . . . I am going to blog 4 out of 7 days per week. There! Project # 1.
AND . . . GO—–
