Pushing My Boundaries:
One of the ways that I'm surrendering to the moment, pushing my boundaries, stepping out of my comfort zone, and BEing in the present, is by engaging in free writing. I like to call this my spark writing. These short vignettes provide me with kindling to fire the creative writing process. It literally frees my creative side in a playful, whimisical, and interesting way. These pieces take me out of the cognitive side of writing into the feeling, emotional, enriching stories that provides a meaningful support to deeper writing. I write short stream of consciouness so I can dig deeper to find the well of creativity that is bursting to find a voice. Spark writing enables me to get to the root of writing where the nourished, juicy parts are ready to be revealed.
