When I need inspiration, I free write or look to my favorite author for a tidbit of wisdom. Today, I did both.
Excerpt from Bird by Bird, by Anne Lamott:
“You get your confidence and intuition back by trusting yourself, by being militantly on your own side. You need to trust yourself, especially on a first draft, where amid the anxiety and self-doubt, there should be a real sense of your imagination and your memories walking and woolgathering, tramping the hills, romping all over the place. Trust them. Don’t look at your feet to see if you are doing it right. Just dance,” Anne Lamott.
Let the Words Dance Haiku
A story to tell—
stop, listen and let go
words dancing along.
