Today was a play day. There were other responsibilities requiring my attention, but mostly I wrote. My fingers struggled to keep pace as the words tumbled and flowed. Time stood still, and the words piled higher than the parking lot’s snow hills.  Today’s writing was without true purpose, without constraints, without pressure. The goal was to add words to the page.

I kept checking the clock, sure that hours had elapsed, to discover it had only been minutes. It was a wonderful feeling. It lifted my spirits and made me smile.

Does a productive writing session change your attitude?

  1. It’s interesting how one minute we can feel un-inspired and then suddenly we are walking or sitting on the train… who knows, but suddenly inspirational ideas come to us. SAME with writing as you did. When our mind can relax, writing can flow, because we have not put restraints on our creativity to be “perfect” with every word, that comes later. GLAD you had a productive day.
