I'm not even sure where this idea came from and I wasn't aware of being a slave to it until this past week. It is betrayer to my creative life.
As you may know, we're currently in the throes of annual NaNoWriMo craziness, which requires truckloads of creativity. I sat at my computer laboring over my novel, honestly intending and trying to be creative, when the lightning bolt hit. I'm my own worst enemy. I travel the same well-worn ruts over and over again, trapped by my own experiences and perspective.
An insidious voice, quieter than a whisper, is constantly censoring and evaluating my thoughts. I'm changing that today. There is freedom is releasing myself from these constraints, but for me the execution is difficult. I am me, after all, and it's hard to get away from that.
So I've come up with a strategy.
Wish me luck!
