So for the last two months I have sworn I am going to mend my ways and at least blog every day, if not work on actual writing projects every day.? (Never mind that I have my own definition of writing, which involves many more words than blogging!)? After great starts both months, I have foundered in the middle.
I have always denied this has anything to do with writers block – but certainly my sticking to my own beliefs and spoken desires has not worked.? So it may not fit the definition in my head (whatever that is) of writers block.? But it certainly does quack like that particular duck.
I also heard myself today talking about the difficulty that Geminis have with the middle of a project.? Beginnings are fun, endings are fun.? That dreaded tedious middle.? Ugh. Another statement I have made pretty often over the years is that the hard part for me of writing – is simply sitting down at the computer and starting to write.
Obviously, repeating those statements to myself has only exacerbated the situation.
I often write to find out what it is that is true for me – hearing myself write it will frequently supply that answer.
What I am going to try today, rather than walking the weary trail of understanding the problem, is to create new statements that move me to a different place.? And I will use these affirmations to take up all the space the negative thoughts do right / write now.
I am a terrific writer (I have no problem affirming that as true).? I love sitting down and writing.? One of the main pleasures in my day is the act of writing.? I am so happy that I am writing at least 20 minutes every day (I am seeing purple on my computer keyboard as I write that sentence!? A very good sign!). Writing is the easiest and most fun thing I do. ? The aaaahhhhh when I’m finished with my writing for the day makes me feel sooooo good!
Thanks, Higher Self / Spirit / Universe!? I’ll bet my Aunt Mary Lou, who always encouraged my creativity even when I was very small, is cheering happily from the other side as well.? Aaaaaaahhhhhh.? 😕 >
