It’s so much easier to read about, study, and talk about writing than it is to actually sit down to write.
Snippets; When Will You Ever … really write?
I know I’m supposed to write. And write. And write. I know it in my bones. And yet; I don’t write nearly as much as I should.
It’s so much easier arranging and rearranging my office, my stacks and my document files, to write, than actually to write the ding dang documents.
The thoughts, or at least the concepts, are flying through my head at great speed. I sit to type, or write it on the page, and just as quickly it flies away.
I take notes; Snippets on napkins, snippets on my phone, snippets on postie notes. Snippets in my pockets, and even snippets written sometimes on my palms.
To no avail. They are just snippets. Except like at this moment, telling myself, and you all the reasons why I can’t get it done.
Now as I’m typing this, I am wondering if my issue is because of the depth I would like to reach in my writings.
Living it was difficult, analyzing, and processing was almost more difficult.
Truthfully, I may not be really sure just how to get that deep again.
Is re-visiting the pain necessary? After all, it is gone.
Do I have to feel it all over again? Maybe trying to remember it again in so much detail is what is slowing me down.
What do I have to share that can best help you, the reader, in the way that you need helped?
Clarity is on the way. I know it. Perhaps you can help me by letting me know how I can share with you in a meaningful way.
Long, short, I believe I didn’t just walk through my life, and learn what I learned for my own benefit, but for yours as well.
And just so you know, in the mean time, I’m saving all of those snippets!
Writing is healing, the same with painting, playing instruments or doing sports, i mean whatever you have passion for it can heal you, because you do something you love and love is the biggest power in the world!
I probably have at least that many hiding away on my lap top and in journals. From snippets all the way to full blown chapters. I’ll saving them. All. Some day I’ll put them to good use I am sure, and help someone else besides myself. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
Hi, I have found so much healing in writing. I also, wrote 1 book, 30 k words about my life. I deleted because it was just for me, in terms of getting it out. Now my writing has changed and I have stared a new book for everyone to read. Keep going, always Scott.
