I’ve actually already written several hundred words today. I’m very proud of my progress but also understand the challenge. Each word did not come easily and it has taken several hours to write what I could have written in a single hour.
This will get easier but I know it will take more than three days on this journey for my heart to find an inner fluidity and sense of simplicity. Writing well is different from writing with ease. Each word requires patient, conscious thought. It requires concentration and a struggle to find the right word, to spell it correctly, to type it flawlessly.
A part of my inertia has created more than a difficulty in expressing ideas or facing the blankness. My typing speed is down, my accuracy depleted, even my vocabulary and confidence with language has dithered due to disuse.
This too will improve with practice. Words, my life-blood, will flow easily with repetitive writing exercise. Working my fingers, and actively using my mind to conjure ideas and express thoughts will make influence the flow.
Time for the Carnegie Hall Quote, “Practice, practice, practice.” :-)
