IWSG – Write

20140107-233736.jpg
Sometimes, we doubt our ability to write. More often than not, it starts from a thought or comment made that we internalize. Things, we entertain in our minds, can drive us nuts or worst, block our writing creativity.

Recently, this has happened to me. My thoughts were all over the place! To be honest, it’s so easy to put pressure on ourselves to think we have do everything in one day. Sometimes, we have to ask ourself, do I have to blog everyday? Just keeping up with emails and comments can bring a challenge. Add in visiting all the blogs, we follow…thus doubting thoughts. I unplugged from all electronic devices for a few day just to get a handle on things and stuff in my life!

When my thoughts were all over the place, I got a little frustrated so I wrote down every silly thought. Then I just read them over and started revising the negative statements into positive statements. Now I had positive stuff to write from a different perspective. I encourage you to try it. (smile)

Balance, finding balance is necessary and as Alex says “have fun” (smile) At least, once a week, lighten up and laugh and have fun doing something that is not writing. (smile)

After a break, with a fresh mind, words will flow!

I have faith, someday, we’ll all write a masterpiece! (smile)

I love the idea of turning those negatives into positives. Good advice.
Keeping my fingers crossed about our masterpieces.

That’s right – have fun!
It is a balance. Some days that balance is off, but if can keep most days even, we’ll be all right. God wants us to have a balanced life.

Just another IWSG member checking in: Am I giving away my age when I say this post reminded me of ‘Ridiculous Thoughts’ by the Cranberries? I hope my ‘thoughts’ lead me to a masterpiece too!

I think it’s a great idea to write down everything when your thoughts are all over the place. It’s better to get the ideas out then to let them run around in your head driving you crazy.

Thanks for posting!
