Something to be said (from a master) about writing for ourselves. Turning that corner to writing from exteriors to creating from interiors; our experiences, all so unique and divine in their own ways. No two stories alike, not lived the same, experienced the same or told the same.
I'm looking forward to reading his book, "Zen in the Art of Writing: Releasing the Creative Genius in You." I just KNEW there was a creative genius in here. She's just been held hostage by that devilish inner critic~ like the guy in France who wears a disguise, helps himself to gourmet food by topnotch chefs and then swings his magic wand (from behind closed screens), holding sway over how many others order from said chef's menu.
My creative genius has been trapped under years of heavy baggage loaded with molting, overripe cheeses~ like the kind friends once tried to send home from France, which got lost and arrived months later. Needless to say, all of the stinking cargo had to be thrown out. My guess is the bag went as well!
Time to throw out the old, moldy footschtink that's been festering for decades and allow the creative goddess to play, dance, create to her wild heart's content.
Now if I could just find my lined paper...
