I is for Imagination

This is the best part of the game--sitting down at your computer and letting your imagination flow. We used to do it all the time as children. As adults, it sometimes seems harder. Why is that?

Just now, I sat down to work on my current wip and my mind went blank. I stared at the words I'd already written, but couldn't think of one dang thing to add. Why? Oh, I don't know. Maybe I have a lot on my mind. Maybe it's stress. Maybe I'm feeling guilty for not working out this morning and I'm punishing myself with writer's block.

It made me think back to my childhood. I had none of those problems back then. My biggest worry as a six year old was if I should play with barbies that day, or 'people.' Remember 'people'? Loved those little things. So, I'm going to sit back, close my eyes, and pretend I'm a child again. I'll bet you a million bucks my fingers start flying over the keyboard with something fabulous. I'll let you know.

I love playing with the "people". My Mom still has all of them at her house for the grandkids to play with. I almost chose imagination for my post today. It is funny how we think alike. Instead I decided on "improvise". I know, a long ways away from imagination. :)

It's so fab to always be in touch with one's inner child!!!

I hope your words are flowing now and your imagination, soaring! take care

So what you're saying is -- You're back to playing with 'people'. Somehow writers always have that bit of child.

I recommend just going ahead and working out - maybe inspiration (or imagination) will hit then and you'll sprint back to your computer!

Writing is so much like playing with people. Who's in? Who's out? Who's moving or talking? Great analogy. There's an uncertain balance between imagination and hard work, isn't there?

I'm all about imagination! Sometimes I really wonder where some of the things I think come from... It's also the reason why I love and encourage play therapy :)
