There is something magical about writing in the dawn. Time belongs to me. The hustle and chatter of other voices haven't invaded my thoughts. In this quiet I am able to think, to dream, to capture light.
I feel fully alive, as I watch light for the new day, slowly raise on the horizon. Starting as the tiniest hint of colour on an otherwise hazy sky, and lifting into a beautiful ball of flames. The words that lingered in my mind as I went to sleep, tumble out onto the page.
Mornings are the time to take the initiative. I like to grab it with both hands. Getting it down on paper or capturing it on film.
Day Three of Jeff Goins series asks us to commit to getting up early to write everyday, to make space for writing and to write something that scares us. I have begun editing my book, which calls for me to write new material, turn & tighten passages and ruthlessly cut passages which don't make the cut. With my book I have a slightly scary feeling, of 'what if'. But, instead of wasting time worrying about that, I embrace it as I write.
How does writing in the morning make you feel?
Does writing scare you?
That's it for now ...
