Day 22 ~ The Body Remembers

Music has a way of bringing us back to place, a memory, an emotion. Today I reflect on what the body remembers and how to use that muscle and emotional memory in the work we are creating. Sometimes I feel like I can access the darkness easier than I can the joyful memories. https://youtu.be/hdp3iDOaRe8 Visit… Continue reading Day 22 ~ The Body Remembers

Do you feel like you're a mess these days? Do the people you love the most constantly remind you of the ways you start something and can't finish it?

Day 17 ~ What a Writer Needs

Writing has changed me. I used to love noise and loved being around people. These days I have other needs. What to when you are desperate for some quiet? Writer's have needs.

Day 14 ~ Writing for the Audience of ONE

What keeps us from writing is, lo que diran!!! There is something that happens when we pay more attention to the outer/inner critic. Who are we bringing into our writing space before we even begin?

Day 13 ~ Impostor Syndrome
