It’s funny when you think you don’t know what to write about – then all of a sudden – you have an ah-ha moment – something just starts to click – like your neurons in the brain starts to fire off. Waiting for the perfect thought – the right inspiration just to get the perfect piece. Then I remember that often some of the best work comes from opportunities that were made useful – rather than waiting for a perfect moment to make useful. Get it written already. Whatever it is – however it is – just write. Great writing never happens by just thinking – great writing happens when you are willing to bleed at the keyboard – one word at a time.
Who likes fiction? What about christian fiction? My imagination has been unleashed like a lion just let out of it’s cage. He’s roaring louder now – can you hear him? I’ve begun my first fiction novel. Im in deep – so excited to see the characters unfold. I am playing with colorful word imagery – creating their persona one click at a time – only backspacing to add a little detail – a little cinamon and spice. The funny thing is I haven’t thought of the title yet – waiting for the characters to eventually speak through their personalities. God is about to show up in Tamara’s life – first she has to do some decluttering. I’m not going to give up too much to soon. Hold tight to your ropes the excerpt is coming soon. Find yourself in the different characters and see how God can transform a life.
In the meantime stop and pick up ” The Chains That Love broke” on amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0615994814?cache=89fbab6f96889602b055ef5dc6bd68be&pi=SY200_QL40&qid=1407972005&sr=8-1#ref=mp_s_a_1_1
So ultimately I sat here looking at the computer – it looking at me. I wanted to create another post, but my brain was on pause! I didn’t have anything. So I’m going to share what I was doing when there was nothing spilling out onto the keyboards. You ever have those moments of pure silliness? Inside your chuckling because I’m sure somebody is looking – wondering – what is she doing? I didn’t care – I was going to be silly!
I heard in the deep recesses of my heart – don’t be so serious! Let loose – get goofy! That my friends I did. The ability to stay fun – even for short moments – it does a body good. Creativity is born when you just be free – no formulas – precise directions. Just free! To birth creativity you have to connect with the inner kid – not the rigid adult. How fun could the workplace become if we learned this simple trick. How about if you have a project that you’re totally stuck on. Have you ever thought to walk away from it and return when you have refreshed. Give yourself 15 min of silly – when you return you will be able to better focus. It’s fun – relaxing – be free!
I hope I taught you one thing – if nothing else today. Be free! Have fun – be silly. It is the tool to creativity.
