In November when nanowrimo was in full swing, I found myself stuck after a few days of writing and I never met my word goal. Today I am ahead of my word goal, so what is the difference between the two experiences? Passion.
In November I tried to think of a book that others would like not a book I felt passionate about, this lack of passion brought about a lack of inspiration in my work, and a lack of inspiration means a book that will not manifest. Not only did I lack the words to write my story but I also lacked the feelings that bring it to life.
I have begun to understand that thoughts are one thing but to connect them to reality is another, you can’t just repeat words and things will just appear. What I found is that feelings must be added to these words to bring any book into reality. Same goes with anything in our lives, there is a saying that goes, “believe and you shall receive”, what does this really mean? It doesn’t say think and you shall receive, it says believe and you shall receive, belief entails feelings behind what you think.
We’ll see what manifests at the end of the month.
