5 Minute Freewrite: Friday - Prompt: burning

in freewrite •  last year 

It is that time when something is burning to get out, but I don't have the words to get it out.

I think I'm going to go elsewhere. This isn't working for me. Or, maybe it is and I need to stick with it. write write write. Who cares?

Might I be getting into that negative frame of mind again?

Do any of you have that problem when you write something really good (not only you think it is really good) and the next day it is like starting all over again? Nothing comes to mind.

I wrote something; therefore, something came to mind.

I have been studying the I Ching. I like the different hexagrams (symbols) used to represent nature. I've yet to get to any depth in regards to this subject. I just know that I like it.

The flame of passion burns inside of me. This world must change. The only way to successfully change the world is to change me. If I can do that, a whole new world will be open to me to explore.

Who wants to be free? Who is willing to put in the work to get free? It will be painful. All growth will go through growing pains. I'll probably complain it about it some more and make it worse on myself before I am finished playing that game.

Hey @tristancarax.

I can definitely say that I have times when I have nothing or little to write, and other times when my fingers can't fly fast enough. Okay, that's most of the time. Dumb stubby fingers. :) Still, it's okay. Better to write when we can't stop than to force things, though I suppose, someone will tell you better to sit down and pound it out. Each one of us needs to figure what's best for us. I'd just end up rewriting something I grinded on anyway.

As for negative, heck yeah. It's called being human, and things hardly go the way we want them to or when. Patience is a virtue because it's not a natural human trait. It needs to be developed. Some folks do it faster than others. A lot of us work on it for a long time.

I really like those days the fingers are flying. lol

Taking time to go over my work is something that takes patience. 8-)

I like what these freewrites get out. Freed up space for other things.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Oh, editing is the worst. Takes way too much time to do it, especially on those larger projects. And it's always best, though highly inconvenient, to have someone else who knows how to look it over. Posts and comments not so much, but the bigger stuff, definitely. Still takes patience and time.

I have to agree with you. 8-)

It's still fun to keep the words running through the prompt.

I appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

Keep going no matter what comes out is one of the things I practice. These 5 minutes practices are good for getting out stuff.
