It is so interesting to me to see the various views from writers on the concept of writer’s block.  Some successful writers on writing, say that you don’t allow it, you write through it.  Others say that you write something.  Others say that you keep a practice regardless, like a job.  I see myself as a very novice writer, so I suppose I don’t feel that I have enough experience to have a professional opinion, however writing has become so much a part of my life and my journey that I will share the way that I have been handling writing in these months of dedicating time to writing:  I allow droughts, I honor the process, I go in – invite the opportunity and allow the outcome.  I am a believer of “a time and a season”.  I am writing for the journey, the process, hopefully one day with rewards, but my livelihood does not totally depend on it at this point, so I suppose I can take the journey approach.  I think that is why I am surprised in one way, that I have completed a daily blog post with a haiku, haiga, or other poetry, every day thus far of 2012.  I am a visionary, a journeyer, an allower, and yet I have written something each day.  In one way it is very different from the commitment of 500-, 1000-, 5000-words a day, and in another way it is similar, sometimes it takes the same amount of time to create 17 syllables as it does 1000 words.  Hmmm…thinking out loud.  I think I will go have refreshment…smile.

  1. Well said. The process varies for every writer and though there’s significance in writing through, honing and becoming dedicated to writing in that strict manner, letting it come on its own offers it’s own rewards. Thanks for the ping back 🙂

Would love to hear from you...
