Good Intentions Writing

22 11 2010

Pen and Paper

A few days ago, I posted a muse/challenge about “writing through the senses“.  So yesterday I had some time in the afternoon and went to a local bookstore to write/experiment with the exercise.  As every writer talks about and every person has experienced with good intentions, my mind went blank.  There was just nothing there.  I thought for fun, I would write about a cup of coffee – thought it would be an easy practice with writing through the senses.  I sat, smelled, listened, looked at people drinking, and everything was blank.

So as accomplished writers suggest, I just started writing.  I thought I would humor you with my “nothingness”…

Writing Practice

Lost

Without Direction

Good Intention

Desire

Empty

Without Connection

Purposeless

Pen Propped

At The Ready

Go, Create, Enter

Into The World,

Into Words, Into The Heart,

Into An Infinite Realm Of Possibilities…

And Here I Sit With Nothing To Write.

As we know, life is so much about the process and not the success, the outcome, or the purposefulness of the task.  Be ok with the day…and every part of it…

I like your nothingness. 🙂 Well done for having zero inspiration.
