Writing a something-a-day (for me it has been a poem or a play) is life saving for a writer. Getting that piece done every single day is what keeps my art, my craft, my soul alive.
Don’t give in to writer’s block. If you are a writer, remember: writers write.
I have written on days when I didn’t think I could get out of bed. I’ve written with migraines (hundreds of them over the years), I’ve written through my tears when sadness or depression or anger or grief threatened to overwhelm me. I’ve written when I had to leave for work in five minutes. I’ve written on days when I have to go to the eye doctor and have my eyes dilated. I’ve written when I’m sleepy, hungry, or throwing up every now and then. (A bit of stomach flu vs food poisoning. I haven’t written with food poisoning.)
And READ. Read whatever strikes your fancy. For the past few days, I’ve been reading a blog, years behind, trying to catch up to the current date because I love this blog so much. If you don’t know about it, go find it here. 67 and dumped is written by Julie Klam’s Aunt Mattie. Hilarious, touching, and so interesting. Have fun. Read books too. I’ll be writing a review of one you should read. It’s not out yet, but coming in February.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me something (a note is good).
