With deliberate intention, the goal was to devour thousands of words. He reveled in the delicious anticipation of cerebral and sentimental fulfillment. Focused and ready for some relevant adscititious information to challenge his brain’s hunger for knowledge and fantasy. The emotions of the poets forcefully laid down impressions on his mind. Hours passed immersed in the stories and written essences of others. It colored him happy. And tired. The eyes slowly closed. All the words turned to dreams of mystical sunsets with a bareback unicorn ride on the beach, hair whipping in the wild wind.
Then he woke up smiling.
Feeling through your eyes.
Chasing the inspiration.
Writing it through mine.
**Thx Terry for making me go deeper into my own. 🙂
I’m stepping out into the arena of hopefully being able to support myself full-time doing what I love – writing, expressing myself, immersing myself in quality words and experiencing joy in meanings. Would you please consider meeting me there? I’d love to have you in my community.
My process is to Read, Think and Write. You might say it’s quite simplistic, but you’d be wrong.
The only effortless part of the process is reading. It’s a joy to immerse myself in others’ thoughts, get to know them through their words. And they spur me on towards my musings about things. Their things. They create an interest in me I need to discover further and intensely.
I think diligently. Mull their things over inside my brain and insides. What does it feel like to them, what does it feel like to me? What do I think about that as it presents to the world? Would I do/feel different or do I agree? Does it propel me into taking the next step to evaluate it on paper? Is it a stepping stone, and does it catapult me into furthering my own greatness? These questions, this wrapping myself up in their writing allows me to discover another level of myself.
I am but the person who takes the intentional influence and runs with it. Every thought gives me new reasons to soar with the eagles.
Read… Think… Write… That’s living.
And that’s succeeding in my book.
