It's Tuesday and I am linking up with the Slice of Life Community of writers once again. You should too!
Write it Down Make it Happen.
I have read this book almost every summer for the past ten years. I stumbled across it at our local book store years ago and knew I had to have it. I have always been a big believer in writing things down, wishes, wants, dreams, and needs.
I make lists for groceries, to-do lists, things I need to do in my day, for my classroom, at home.
I write down dreams and desires, gripes and concerns. I write what and who I’m grateful for, and how appreciative I am of them.
I write story ideas and funny things I read or hear. Sometimes I just write to write.
Blogging also gave me this wonderful place to put all of my thoughts and writing. It is a place for people to read what I write. It brought a new phase to my writing, and I love it.
But lately I have felt empty. The words have eluded me and my pen. I have not wanted to write.
So this morning I pulled out my book once again. Each time I read it I discover something new and different. I have just made it through the first chapter and I already feel the writing me awakening again.
One quote I marked from the first few pages that I had not marked before was “There is no right or wrong way to do it. Life is a narrative that you have a hand in writing.”
And so I am.
