Yesterday I wrote about how I want to write here every day and that I’m using the prompts from the book, Kicking In The Wall, to do this. Today’s prompt asks that we set an intention and find a new way of looking at the wall to find out is preventing us from writing.
Incidentally, these are going to be 5 minute writes. I set a timer for 5 minutes and write until it goes off.
A New Way Of Looking At The Wall
Today’s prompt: Write an intention, a new way to look at the block or wall that’s keeping you from writing, or a plan to ignore it and move on.
I love how creepers use walls and sticks to grow. They use ‘walls’ as a support and a means to grow. It makes me think of how I can do this do.
When I think of a new way of looking at the ‘wall’, I think of using it as a means to grow in my writing. That I can write despite a block says something about my determination to write and my passion for it.
Self-doubt creeps in. That inner critic that tells me that I can’t stick to thing. But what they tell me is not true. I’ve been blogging regularly since December 2007. That’s 14 years — a long time.
I can do this. And I will. Every single day.
Are you facing a wall in your writing? Consider looking at it in a new way?
