I don’t know about you, but I find myself running around most every day, rushing from one task to the next without ever taking a breath. By nightfall I’m completely exhausted, and mind still spinning, I throw myself in bed where I have tortured dreams about all the things I have to do the next day.
Here’s the thing. We all have to rest. We all have to fill the well in order to be able to draw from it in our pages. We have to replenish.
Even if you have a full time job, even if you have a family that you’re responsible for, even if you are committed to your writing every day, you must find stillness.
Here are some tips on how to find and create quiet in your busy life.
It’s easy to be afraid of stillness, because you know you’ll actually have to deal with the thoughts and feelings that arise. But if you ignore these things, they come to control you. Let them in, acknowledge them, fully experience them as they pass through you.
Take action. Find a time each day to be alone with yourself.
It’ll make you a better writer.
