Why shouldn't it be easy?

The writing is finally flowing a bit more easily. I have also started to dream about this book, which I think means the channel for this work to come through is finally open. I awaken at morning and feel a stir of excitement to get back to the story, to make up for all the months I have lost to wringing my hands and thinking this process has to be hard. It was hard. Truly, the only thing that's changed, other than the fact that I am further along in the narrative, is my conscious decision that this could be easy. I actually sat on my bed one morning and said: Please let this be easy. I can't say it has become easy, exactly, but I have begun to enjoy the engagement so much more, to remember that I actually love and learn so much from doing this work. And right now, I feel a desire to thank all of you who read here, because the practice of writing this blog, of speaking to you regularly in this space, helps me. It keeps me in the habit of finding the next word, of making it play. You have no idea how much you are a part of my process.

Thank you.
Thank you.
So much love.

  2. You're welcome! Yes, writing a blog is a good way to keep your writing chops moving. I no longer write to sell, but get the same charge out of writing both my blogs. It's a reminder that writing is for other people to read and enjoy. It's not talking to yourself. And reactions are a great reward.

    I'm glad to be part of your team!

  5. When you share about your writing process, you inspire me in my process of making mandalas. Reading what you write, I always know I am in good company. We are in sync. This current mandala has been stalled for some time and in the last 24 hours, as a result of re-reading Virginia Woolf's To The Lighthouse and reading about your breakthrough, I see a way forward. Dreams and prayers and love play a large part in the creative process. Thank you!
