Monday Motivation - On Flying High
"I pick the prettiest part of the sky and I melt into the wing and then into the air, till I'm just soul on a sunbeam." ~Richard Bach
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.

Beautiful picture, quote and post. Thank you for the encouragement as I get ready to dive into my project for the day :-)ReplyDelete
Lovely post. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
You know what? You're a lovely soul.ReplyDelete
And it's hard, too, diving back in each day....worrying that what you wrote the day before is even worse than you remember.ReplyDelete
That's where true courage comes in.
(Too bad I am a chicken!)
So true, Lisa. As much as I struggle to find the time, it's creating the mental space that makes flying possible that I struggle with.ReplyDelete
Happy flying to you!
