In an effort to write more, especially here at SoulSEAker, I’m participating in a writing challenge. My goal is to publish something every day based upon the given prompt that I receive via email.
As Elizabeth Gilbert writes about in “Big Magic,” I have to find the time to write, even if I have to sneak away for a few moments, like two lovers do. They find the time, somehow, to be with each other, and I am now making it my choice to find time every day to write something.
Ironically enough, today’s prompt is to write a response to one of six words. CHOICE is one of them. Dedicating myself to writing every day is my choice. I choose to let the day’s to do list sit idly for a while and energize my creativity by writing. Even if nobody reads what I write, I am still encouraged and satisfied that I wrote.
I’ve had such a spark of inspiration for writing lately. Not only here, with my blog entries, but in my journals, in some projects, and in my planner. I have written more in the past week than I have in a very long time. And there’s still the same hours in the day as before, when I couldn’t find the time to write. Now I have found it because I CHOOSE to find it. And what a difference that choice has made.
Another one of the six words for today was REGRET. I almost chose to respond to that word instead. However, after thinking it over, I changed my choice. Someday, I’ll be ready to write about regret, but that’s not my choice today.
Thank you for sticking it out with me and for following me along my journey as I “seak” my soul. Definitely, to be continued…
