Learning to Write Again
(Okay, I took a liberty)
I go through phases where I seem to forget everything I know about storytelling and writing. I get stuck in an ugly funk that drains me.
I stagnate as I kill myself creatively and spiritually. I struggle to liberate myself. To free my muse and concentrate on the basics.
Figuring out how to start from square one is difficult. Terror shuts me down as I work to free my brain, my heart and my spirit.
Then I break through, allowing myself to be free of my restraints. That’s when I do my best work. Not when I’m nitpicking, second guessing and stressing.
The story is the ‘easy’ part, the mind games are the hard part. I just have to remember to breathe and make it happen.
