Love them in all their shades of emotion and deep range of story.
But perhaps you also suffer from overcritical-alitis when it comes to your own writing?
May I propose a cure?
On Fridays, a few of us have fallen into the habit of taking five minutes to just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.
Five minutes to remember that we are creatures sculpted by The WORD and made for The WORD and beloved by The WORD.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. John 1:1-3.
So on Fridays, we take the dare to become Word Artists. To throw editing and proof reading and critically raised eyebrows out the window. We finger paint with our words – in pink and blue and dark purple. In glitter glue and bright green.
Just five minutes. No more. No less.
Come play word art with us, why don’t you. It’s easy."
