Sometimes, if you write fast without thinking, the words will break through.
“Every writer I know has trouble writing.”
I’ve been avoiding the post box. My blog writing is the writing I do for me. It’s the writing I do for fun. It’s the writing that is most unexpected. My blog writing is the writing I allow to trail out of my heart and curl into magic.
I’ve worked hard to keep a space in my writing life that can be just for magic. And, by magic, I mean a space that doesn’t have to be perfect…a space that doesn’t have rules.
I’ve noticed there are others in this community who ebb and flow in their writing lives. I miss them when they don’t post. I miss me when I don’t post, too.
So here’s my best advice: sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and write fast. Don’t think, and definitely stop overthinking. Just write. Fast.
I think you’ll find some magic when you let the words break through.
