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. The Mermaid in the rain drops

    microscopic life
    all around us
    we don’t see them
    they see us

    the mermaids
    who live in the rain drops
    delight in watching
    us humans

    as the rain drops
    fall on our head
    the mermaids scream
    in delight and fear

    as they land on the shoulders
    of the monsters they think we are

    My Phobias Overwhelm Me

    lately I have become scared
    of everything
    the news scares me, the corona virus scares me, the presidential race scares me
    fears of gun men in the street, terrorism, fears of getting sick, fears of dogs
    fears of other people, fear of loosing money

    all these phobias overwhelm me
    time to walk away from my fears

    and realize
    it will be all right
    everything will be all right
    As long as I have you
    by my side
