  1. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!

    1. Hello, that you for your question. The first key is that I never assign writing as a task. I wait until I feel a “fullness of that which is seeking to be expressed” prompted from my heart and that feels like a great fullness that is like carrying something which longs for expression and must be put to word. Then, because of the waiting art, the writing time is very full and that creative period is like pouring out that fullness like water from a full vessel. The words come full bodies in sentences, though I never know the next sentence until I write the one prior. It is like pulling a woven thread from a place that is already partially created but I need to use myself as the sculptor to finish the form with the dance of the words. I am like one part of the process but not the full creator. Creativity is the willingness to be still, to listen to something greater than yourself, to remain in waiting, to learn to hear the prompting, to follow it, and to learn to dance with it as the medium of expression.
      Then, to stand back and review, edit, review, refine, shed, refine and create an aesthetic that matches the original nature of the prompting that initiated the writing.
