Inspiration Call: * Timed Writing *

Inspiration Call: * Timed Writing * Choose a set time to write, 5 −7 minutes serves well. Set a timer, watch the clock. Stop writing when the time is up, even in the middle of a sentence. In timed writing, you write for a short, prescribed period of time. The purpose of timed writing is to prime the creative pump: shortening writing time makes sure you have more to say than time to say it. The frustration of stopping creates the impetus to write more. You become more interested in the ideas and thoughts you want to put down and less self-conscious about the times it’s taking to write. This exercise also helps develop confidence and establishes creative tension.

  1. My shadow watches me
    Judging my actions
    Yet ever a part of me

    This shadow forever hidden
    Deep inside my soul
    A subtle influence nudging me
    To questionable activities

    Today I choose my course
    Freely walking this way
    Fate be damned for it’s fickleness
    My heart in charge forever hence

    The hard road to redemption
    Becomes my path traveled for love

    Whether given by the new God
    Or the God’s of old is unclear

    But I have chosen to walk the walk
    For the goddess in my heart
