Finally slowed down enough today to realize what is hampering me from posting. This is going to sound incredibly silly to readers out there, because one would think that I would know better but…… my biggest impediment has been that I have not been accessing my blog remotely.
Perhaps it’s the writer in me that compromises the paper and ink exercise for a seat before the glowing pc screen on a dusky early morning and makes the experience her own Walden Pond. I have created writing rituals which have left me bereft of speedy content uploads. I have realized that it’s time to put away the sentimental notion of connecting with my words in a given process and move on with the rest of my digital life by uploading from my mobile phone or creating posts on my laptop while on the road.
Sometimes you have to slow down to capture the simplest of ideas……
I leave you with this inspiring quote from poet and writing mentor, Joe Zarantonello:
“As Einstein liked to say, “God doesn’t play dice.” This isn’t some random crapshoot–this is your life. If you’ve forgotten what you are supposed to be doing here, no time like the present to remember! And if you haven’t discovered your purpose yet, keep looking. Don’t give up on the one thing that really matters!”
Guess that message applies to me. So let’s raise a toast to increased written productivity!
