Write for the fun of it.
There are many reasons to write. Today, write for the fun of it. Writing is fun. Let the words wiggle and make something just because making stuff is fun. Write everything you know about zucchini or tooth brushing. Look for an unexpected color and write about it. Allow yourself to be charmed by the flowers or the lightening bugs.
Let’s not get caught up in the have to-s, as in I have to write a blog post today. Let’s not get caught up with the should haves, as in I should have written a blog post last week. Let’s not get caught up with the weight of a hard story or difficult times.
Smile while you write. Did you know that smiling can actually trick the body into a better mood? The act of smiling can trigger good feelings (powered by dopamine and serotonin) and lead you to being more open to fun.
PS — When you have fun while writing more magic is released into the world, making your corner of it a little more beautiful.
