A Writer’s Love Affair

Your eaten heart by By EssG (Sean Ganann) [http://www.flickr.com/photos/essgee/]Can you have a three-minute love affair with yourself through your writing?

What do you do when you’re stuck with your writing?

I don’t know about you guys but I encounter stuckness all the time. The only difference is that I know, know like by life experience know, that writing is the only way through the stuckness.

As I sit here on the first day of the new year and follow though on my promise to myself — to post every day this year — I’m faced with what to write about.

Luckily, I make lists of topics to write about. Anytime I have an idea, I either write it in my journal or post it as a draft idea in this blog.

Now when I am sitting to write I can go back to my original prompt and look at it with fresh eyes.

A three-minute love affair with my writing means:

  • write for three minutes
  • love myself in the moment of this stuckness
  • appreciate that I have the tools of writing: a computer, a blog, and the energy to write for more than three minutes
  • invite others to join in this love affair!

How to you capture your ideas when they strike in a flash?

And what are you committed to in this New Year with regards to your writing?

Can you have a three-minute love affair with yourself through your writing?
