This past weekend, was a clean up things so that I could free my mind to write deal. Historically, I have a hard time writing when I have any kind of list of things to do. The todo list seems to be an oppressive weight on my writing ability. So I spent, friday night and Saturday morning clearing up my todo list so that I was enegertically free to write.
It worked, I wrote and wrote and wrote. The real issue was that I wrote from my head and not my heart. When I sat back and reread all that I wrote Sunday after noon. I couldn’t belive the “CRAP” I had written. Yes, it moved my story along. But it don’t take my heart with it! So I did something I have never done before. I simply deleted all the work I did since Saturday noon. Sewlected the text in my word document and deleted it!
I kept no evidence of what I wrote, no copy, no print out. Nothing!!! It felt rather liberating to do this.
The cool part was as soon as I deleted what I had written. The real story began to flow into me.. I gained clarity on what I truly knew that needed to be written!
So not all was lost! 🙂
