A Spiritual Journey

Day 89…

I was working on my Nano novel, tapping out words, moving it along.  But something wasn’t right.  I shut down the computer and walked away.  Hours later I have an idea.  This story is too easy.  Everything is falling in place too quickly, too easily, as if it were a television show that needed to be wrapped up in an hour.  It’s not going deep enough.  There isn’t a real struggle within and between characters.

So I’m taking a couple days off, tending to my responsibilities with the beginning teachers, again something we expect to fall in place quickly and easily.  I’ll come back to the book after I’ve let it play through my experiences. 

Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world.  Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.  Let your soul take you where you long to be…Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.  Erich Fromm

  1. I truly love “The Art Of Loving” By Fromm. Writing predictably is something that comes naturally to us… we can see the events as they unfold to us, but that isn’t how life truly goes. Great post!
