I'm soooooooo tired. I don't want to write another
word. What should I do?
This week's Answer:
"Write of Way"
sorry. I was so tired from writing that I fell
asleep and was dreaming about not writing anymore.
What was that you wrote, Anonymous? (That surname
of yours has really caught on. Especially at 12-step
meetings.) Oh, yes. You're tired and you don't
want to write another word. What to do, what to
do? Here's what I advise: Don't write another
word. In fact, I encourage you to not only not write
another word, but see if you can come up with some way to
erase or delete or scratch away with only the tip of a
dull tip of a Bic pen (if that's all you have handy) the
words you have previously written. Don't allow
yourself to fall into a slump just because you'll never
write again. Become proactive and search out and
destroy ALL the words you have ever written. If need
be, commit to tracking down your elementary teachers and
demand all your past homework. Scratch or erase it
all away. Return to your natural self before you
ever wrote a single word. Back to the original self
known in Oriental parlance as the No Writing Self.
If you mediate, be still and become that once again.
The No Writing Self. It's a beautiful place to
be. Become it. Live it. Breathe
it. Experience it.
However, if you do this, I must warn
you. When you return from this blissful No Writing
Self place, you may have an overwhelming urge to record
your experience and write it down.
