Monday Motivation - On Flying High
I write best when I'm not worrying about my career, or comparing myself to others, or wondering if the story I'm telling is as good as the ones that have come before it, or a hundred other things.
For me, the hardest part of writing isn't the writing itself. It's shutting out the noise and finding my way into a story and getting to the place of blissful writing. Where I can fly free. Free of all things but words and story.
Some days, there is more to think about, more to worry about, more to wonder about, than others.
This week, I wish us all a lot of flying. Of finding that sweet spot where everything else melts away. A soul on a sunbeam indeed.
How does it start? By opening the document and diving in. It all starts there.
