If you're ever searching for a place of fun, near safety and or adventure then pick up a writing instrument and word doodle. We draw circles all the time and attach faces, flowers, butterflies or things we can't describe. Do it with words next time. Put thoughts and expressions together that don't belong next to each other. You're exercising your imagination. It doesn't have to make sense. Just give yourself permission to say anything without there being judgement. On this podcast I come across a page of my daily writing from August 26, 2016. Nearly three years ago. It made me laugh out loud. Not because its funny. I had no idea what the writer was trying to say. Even more fun was the next page where the collected thoughts of the person writing couldn't believe it either. Nor did the writer at the time want to go back and try and explain what was put down on paper. Writing isn't supposed to be so business like. It's a tool that communicates with others but are you talking to yourself? Learning more about those days when life seemed to be more fun and less stress filled. I've always believed there'd be more writers in the world if teachers would put more energy into helping children draw pictures with their words instead of stuffing their noses in books. If you don't know the impact of words what kind of mental gallery are you sending the little minds? Words! Grab a dictionary and see if you're using the right words in the right place and then play with them. Mark Twain was always fascinated with the accents people had in their writing. He didn't want to hear your physical voice. He wanted to read your words.
