Write where your heart is

I struggled to get even a single word out today. Until I stopped trying to write the thing I “had” to get done and listened to my body, that is. It wasn’t that my head and heart wasn’t in it, they were just elsewhere. Once I let them flow to where they wanted to go, everything went better.

Lesson learned: deadlines might be important, but sometimes you’ve got to write what’s ready to come, not what you think you should.

  1. What a great quote! I sometimes pre-plan posts/topics to write about and write them when I have the motivation to write them. That helps me into writing my life chronicles!
