Spinning off of yesterday’s post, I think it’s time we revisit our words. Do you find yourself typing away like a machine at times? Do your words feel mechanical? I think it’s time to visit the flow of what we put on paper. The rhythm of words can change how you feel.
After I read poetry or an author I admire, part of me feels transformed and I want to be a better writer. Maybe that’s our goal as writers. Not just having readers feel emotions but feel as if they just read something that’s changed their lives. Reading your words means that they can’t go back to the way they thought or felt because you turned one a lightbulb inside of them. Beauty of words can do that.
So if you’re not in the right mood, then read something that will soothe and put you in a different place before you sit down at your keyboard. Many artists, actors, and writers use this method to return back to that place of inspiration. This might also help you keep that character consistent.
Add this prompt into your jar as another exercise you can use to get back into the right writing mood. Put on the music or pick up some poetry to get your writing back on track.
My posts are Monday through Friday.
