We absorb everything: the pitch of the irritated lady’s voice in the queue ahead.. the sad creases of disappointment around a little person’s mouth when mom say’s no! to his nagging for a sucker. The flush on the cheeks of a smitten teen.
Life is never boring when you are constantly surrounded by techni-colour material that will breathe life into your next bit of writing.
Even our own insides become grist for the mill… Think about it – we have ringside seats to what churns inside when bad news comes at us down the phone. How about the adrenalin thumping, squeal-inducing good news we’ve been waiting for?
I’m training myself to savour and ABSORB each moment – good and bad – analyze it, tag on some appropriate words, then file it away in my mental filing cabinet for the ‘write’ moment.
Life is truly a delicious array of inspiration. Good and bad. All of it can be used.
May you find much opportunity to get thoroughly soaked this weekend!
