When you’re writing juices are all dried up
OH What to write!
As an author and a poet
As I write and write then one day I stop. Then I think… Is there anything else to write about?
The stories and plots and characters run through my mind, through my dreams through my daylight hours all demanding to be written down on paper. Unfortunately sometimes that is not the case. You sit looking at a blank piece of paper or a blank screen on your laptop and if you are like me then you go blank.
The writing process from beginning “To End,” while enjoyable it is in many ways can be quite excruciating.
While laboring over my writing project and struggling with what I wanted to say or write I closed my eyes and said ‘Lord, help me today. I really need your guiding hand and your wisdom because I have no idea what to write about.’
That’s when it came to me God was a little amused with my writers block. Gently He reminded me He was the creator of writing, His written word. He is the creator of all words.
You turned the water into wine
His mind is the most brilliant
His thoughts the most deepest….. His creativity the most original and the most amazing…He delights in sharing with me.
I don’t know if I will write my best piece this day but I realized I needed to make sure my heart is grateful for what He gives me this day.
Oh Lord, I say to you
Help me write
To YOU this day
My words I write
To show YOUR love
You cause it to bloom
In Your perfect time
Thank you God
Author of all creativity
For new ideas
And I need a few right now.
Please help this lowly writer
Please help me
What Do I Write?
So as I sit at my laptop today
I look towards the Heavenly realm and I realized that MY God is greater than anything in this world or universe and I do not feel alone. That I will just write and I will dream of things to come.
It is written in the stars.
Please enjoy this beautiful violin solo and start dreaming and laughing and loving life.
Me Behind the tree
I guess I need to get from behind that tree and start writing,
