Ten thousand flowers in spring . . .
. . . If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.
Spring becomes the time of year to think about renewal in writing. Writers need an opportunity to consider how to prepare for writing rejuvenation.
Keep it SIMPLE:
S: Savor the growth beginning around you in daisies, daffodils, crocuses, and tulips. Take time to watch nature’s daily progress. See the birds and insects prepare for spring.
I: Invest in your imagination. Forget the stock market and the world’s concerns. Imaginate each moment. Make discoveries, connections and write. write. write.
M: Meditate in your own way. Observing your breath creates awareness and relaxation. Focus on it for one or two intervals during the day. Sit comfortably, breathe in six times and out six times. Gradually extend your exhalations. Try for a fifteen minute period where you erase the jumble from your mind. Let thoughts flow by like clouds.
P: PLAY. Distract yourself with fun and frolic.
L: Let go. Enjoy humor and spread it around.
E: Eat healthy foods and Exercise.
Celebrate YOU! Believe in yourself and your writing. It will grow stronger when you add your own spring fervor.
Creative Write: Find a word (sycamore, pelican, dandelion, salmon) and create your spring renewal with suggestions for each letter. Play, get springy and have fun.
