I know I said I wouldn’t be posting today, but I was able to get some free time in before the summit today. Yesterday I finally finished chapter 14 of Love for an Angel. I won’t lie or deny my own feelings; I love to write.
After a busy and stressful week, it was nice to put on romantic music and write my story. Once I was in the zone, my hands wouldn’t stop typing. I was getting lost in the Heaven and Hell I created. Even though Love for an Angel isn’t as popular as Clash of Tides, I still enjoy writing the story. Due to the low read count, I was wondering if should scrap the project and work on another book, but writing Lana’s story has become a part of me.
I would feel unfilled if I didn’t write out her journey. She is navigating between light and dark, and the darkness always seems pleasurable.
Anyway, I wanted to talk more about writing to calm your spirit. What do I mean by that? Well, if you are an experienced writer, then you already know what I am referring to. If you have a need to get the words out, then just write. Listen to some of your favorite songs and use the music to inspire you. I mean, really listen. To ever note, to every beat, to analyze what your feelings are telling you.
When I write, I listen and watch anime music videos. Since I write romance and love writing romance, it inspires me ten folds!
For those who don’t write often, you should try it. When you write, you can leave all your worries behind and create a world of your own. Don’t like your boss – write about quitting your job. Do you wish you lived somewhere else? Write about yourself or a character moving to a new place.
Let writing be your doorway to a new way of thinking. Maybe as you write your story, you’ll find yourself motivated to make changes in your own life. I know it has helped me. Because of writing, I was inspired to finally leave behind a job I hate and find a new path for myself.
In fact, I love writing so much I wish I knew more words so I can expand my vocabulary. Maybe I’ll try that next =) Writing out my stories feels me with a high I don’t want to lose. So, when I have a feeling I should quit writing, it makes me sad, but I’ll try to keep on going.
