This is an exercise I like to do. I have no idea what I am about to write. Being spontaneous helps me loosen up. I love to write. When I was very young, I would feel the urge to express...and I would sit on the back porch with a ballpoint pen and some paper. I would scribble, not yet knowing how to make words, as the desire sat on my heart like a weight. This weight was not opressive, but delicious, the sensation of eating Mom's fried chicken and potato salad.
I felt the same sensation when I learned to read. Jack London's Call of the Wild, and later John Steinbeck...they gave me that savoring joy, made me want to write. I desired to form words the way they did, to turn a phrase...they gave way to the great metaphysical writers, New Thought leaders like Ernest Holmes (The Science of Mind), Thomas Troward...
A writing teacher in High School wrote in my yearbook that I had vision and that with a little discipline I could do wonders. I'm 51 now, and those words still touch me. They mean something.
I think it's wonderful that we can now express this way, on sites like Red Room. I recall banging away on my portable Royal typewriter, which then I thought was the coolest. But now,we can register online, and just go crazy. It is awesome.
Starting to ramble a little, the main danger of this exercise in spontaneity. I love to see comments on my blogs...don't be bashful..."0 comments" is like an empty mailbox.
