The writer's urge.
Writing unfolds from an urge within that's two-fold in nature, and illusive. It's hard to put words on, yet that's the one thing the craft is all about.
The artistic path.
Artistic creation and personal development combined is like driving a car while stepping on the gas and the breaks at the same time.
The rhythm of the write.
Finding your natural rhythm when writing is key to discovering your voice, and you better be honest with yourself and look in the right place to find it.
Together, towards higher ground.
Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band's recording of his album “Letter to You” made me reflect on collective consciousness and how hard it is to achieve.
