Thank you to the Two Writing Teachers
I've been thinking a lot about listening. I'm not sure that I've been the best listener lately. There's been a lot of chirping going on from all around me and in my own head. Spring is a busy time, right? I thought about the time I need for some reflection, relaxation and rejuvenation (lots of re!).
And then she said it, "-Mom, do you know how to start your day?"
I thought I did but paused for a moment to listen to my little morning dove.
"You haaave to wake up slow and the eat a nutritious breakfast!"
I thought about how this looks as a writer...waking up slow, noticing all the details and gathering them, savoring them, taking it all in...wondering about what is offered in the first moments of the morning. Then I thought about how writers get the nutritious breakfast they need. I'm thinking it is fueled by reading, writing, and listening to what's happening in our midst.
So, I fueled my writing hunger by reading tweets and blogs! I noted thoughts about preaching to choirs, singing, morning walks before dawn and advice about burning candles at both ends. So, I think I know how to start my writing day...how do you start your writing day? How do you warm-up your writing brain?
