So, I’m working on a few big writing projects, behind the scenes, outside of running E-Courses.
Though my work in general has me sitting in front of the computer, writing content for the courses of an E-Book, this feels different. There is no specific deadline, just me having to show up on the page in order to manifest something I crave to create.
I’m having to create some practices to actually get myself to sit down and write! Sometimes the projects that mean most to you are the hardest to dive into!
Here are some ways I’m getting myself to work on it:
- Going to a specific cafe that I don’t regularly go to do work on this project
- Going out of town to a friend’s place while they are away, as a writing retreat
- Putting on my ‘writers’ glasses
So, I figure if I need to use a costume of sorts in order to actually sit down and write…so be it!
I don’t think I’ve ever actually called myself a writer, though I’ve been engaging in the practice of writing for a decade now through blogging but it is something I want to embrace more in my life, in a bigger ways. So I figure maybe sometimes we need bits of costuming to ease ourselves into a new role, to make us feel at home.
Have you ever experienced that?
A paint covered apron you put on and feel like an artist?
Does having an old film camera around your neck make you feel like a photographer?
Tell me I’m not alone in needing a little costuming to embrace a new aspect of one’s self!
