I’ve been participating in a workshop by Janet Conner called Plug In the Intersection for Writers and All Creatives. This Teleclass is based on Janet’s book writing Down Your Soul. Please check out her website to learn more about the process.
As part of the class we are writing every day. I have had many habits developing a daily writing habit. It could be that I spent most of my professional life as an instructional designer. In this role I write other peoples stories. Whenever I get around to my own story, I stuck. I decided to take this class to see if I could shake something loose.
Given my schedule I had difficulty finding the time, so I decided to do my soul writing before I went to bed. Sometimes I write about what’s bothering me and ask for guidance. Sometimes I pose a question and see where my mind takes me. Regardless of what my day has been like I always write down at least 3 things that I’m grateful for.
But here’s the best part, I haven’t gotten a good night’s sleep in at least a year, since I started this practice, I sleep all night. I wake feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead. If I happen to be having a tough day, I know that I have an opportunity to write it down and turn it over at the end of the day
