I love a daily discipline of writing. I loved doing NaNoWriMo in November. Writing is a solitary experience. So a shared blogging platform, like PostADay2011, made writing a communal experience in 2011
Today I signed up for 365 Grateful and Book of Days for 2012. I like a push, a reminder, shared misery, and shared joy.
I respond well to a gentle and encouraging nudge.
If I’m creative on a daily basis, then I have a vessel in which I can dump my creativity when something really cool pops into my head.
It’s good to keep practicing. Writing is a practice. I love that Buddhism is considered a practice, not a fixed religion. The practice of a religion or creativity is not idolizing an icon, but living creatively and staying open to the creative spirit.
Somewhere in my brain there’s a quote about the reason that firefighters shine the pole in the firehouse every day. It needs to be smooth for that one day a year when there’s actually a fire. That is why I write daily, for that one day a year. That”s why I practice.
One thought on “Keep Practicing”
Wishing you well in your 365Grateful and your Book of Days…We have the same word for 2012 as well 🙂
Been lovely participating in Postaday/Postaweek with you in 2011 and will be equally lovely participating in Book of Days and 365Grateful!
