Sometimes you literally have to stop and smell the roses or take in the sunrise, or people watch in the city, or whatever musing fits your mood.
Life doesn’t stop moving but we can take a moment, or two, to take it all in. Musing for me is much like meditating and reflection. I’m able to breathe in where I am or where I’m going and exhale where I’ve been and what I’ve learned. I analyze what I see and how it may or may not affect me and I reflect on what I’ve seen and how different things are now.
On my channel, I’m putting together several moments of musing where I hope you can stop and enjoy the view with me.
I know we are on Day 14 of NaNoWriMo, and you have a word count to hit but why don’t you take a moment to muse just a little bit. Step outside, look out the window or click on the video above. Take it all in to get even more creativity out.
Do you ever run out of stuff to write about…yeah me neither but sometimes, I get tired of typing so I’m restarting my channel on YouTube. Yep that’s right, I’m sharing spur of the moment thoughts about all things pertaining to a writer’s life in hopefully under three minutes!
Check it out. Subscribe or just like a video or two. I hope to inspire you to keep pushing and letting the words flow. And maybe make you laugh a little along the way.
I can never forget about my pain so maybe that’s why I can’t take passion-fy off my mind. It’s a place I’ve lived and written in because it feels good. And even though their is a message around every moment of ecstasy, it’s easier to live in a fictional world of pleasure.
But one day, my pain will live in books as my therapy and a testimony for others who can’t forget either. Pain is powerful and at times rational since it’s gives you the lessons you need to move onward. I actually can’t wait to write about it one day, because it will be deep and soulful. It will change a life a two. It will tell my girls what I could never say out loud. It will tell the stories of others who have built me up and those who have tried to break me down.
But for now I choose to live in words that make me smile and imagine a life that I haven’t lived. On chapter left to review and I’m getting the query letters ready to go.
I’ve created a new world I’ve out of this pain. Now that I think about it, maybe I’m already using Pain’s power.
We’re almost a month out from NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month goes from Nov. 1-30) and I’m reminiscing on what I’ve tried before–and what I didn’t–to see what I need to do this year.
A flashback from the archives…
New #writerslife and #spurofthemoment videos are coming! Remember to subscribe to my channel.
Last year I was out, but this year I’m dedicated to the mission. I’m signing up on the national website and getting my shit together to make this November my most productive writing month yet!
