"As soon as coffee is in your stomach, there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move...similes arise, the paper is covered. Coffee is your ally and writing ceases to be a struggle."~Honore de Balzac

Dig Deep

Diane Ackerman said, "Creativity by its nature has to do with gambling, taking chances, insinuating yourself into darker corners that haven't been explored."

In order to write, we must dig deep into who we are. Journaling helps, but connecting on a regular basis with a group of other writers helps even more. If it's a setting where you feel comfortable and safe enough to express your innermost thoughts you will get your story down on paper. You are what you write. In fact, you don't know who you are until you write. Writing can change your life and can even save your life.

Highly recommended reading is "Vein of Gold," Julia Cameron's followup book to "The Artist's Way."

Saturday Mornings belong to YOU! What makes your story unique is YOU, not just the way you tell that story but what you have to say, the many layers, the shape, subtleties, subtext, the reality behind the fiction. You are your story. Make it the best it can be.

Question of the Day: How can you know what you think unless you see what you write?
