Day 1: Thinking

Insecure Writers Support Group

Overthink (def) [verb] ~ to spend more time thinking about something than is necessary or productive...

What lurks behind your eyes as you lie awake at night? What innovative conjurations twist just beyond your grasp? What romantic or adventurous dreamings make you lust for deep sleep just to recapture that feeling?

And what unsightly doubts linger as you strive for words worth experiencing? Those debilhitating condescending inklings that are your undoing...

The Insecure Writers Support Group is an unknowing step towards acknowledging ones mind can be your strongest enemy when writing, and to finding ways of overcoming the obstacles you think are there.

But how do we prevent every other emotional revolution from inflicting self doubt upon hard worked words?  Where does the line between writing and life blur when it comes down to negative thoughts...

And how do you find clarity among the static thoughts that clamour from all sides, to seize that line of inspiration that pulls you to salvation.

Take a breath.  Listen.

This is how I write.

  1. Great point. Sometimes, we're our own worse enemies when it comes to sharing our story.

    Realizing that, I think, is one of the first step in conquering it....though, I think I've been accused more of 'under thinking', then 'over' =).

    Best of luck!

  2. I try to keep myself busy writing, learning and moving forward, or I'm tempted to fall into this trap. Good post! :)

  3. "Take a breath. Listen.

    This is how I write." - Love this!

  4. This is such a wonderful post - a real reminder to step back from our writing worries! Thank you so much for taking part in #BlogFlash2012!


  5. Just breath. Yep, I'm guilty of listening to all the crap in my cranium.

  6. "Take a breath. Listen." This is how I write too! Wonderful post and great start to #blogflash2012!! :)
