I really have! There were a few wobbly days….and those were the days when I missed my Morning Pages (free writing). Getting those out of the way really clears my head to be able to write down what I really want to say. I have been lost in a world of pirates, princesses and a naked tree, actually! (Er, yes, I am writing for children!)
When I first made the commitment to write, I found it so hard to get the up momentum to start the actual writing. I guess I felt frozen. Now ideas are really flowing well (touch wood). I am excited to sit down at the computer and spill all that is in my head.
I guess what “they” say is true. The more you write, the more you write! I think I found it hard because I was writing stuff that I didn’t think was good. I want to be good right away….I am impatient about getting through that practice stuff….the learning stage. Odd, coming from a teacher, I know! I want to be great right away.
But lately I have just been trying to get it all down, un-perfect, un-edited, even though this is hard for me because I need things to be neat and tidy. Then I will come back to it in a week or so and see what I have written and it seems to either be total crap, or sometimes, it’s something I quite like! So far, this is working…..
