The Writer Whisperer

Mile Rock Beach Trail, San Francisco, CA

Writing isn’t meant to be mundane.

Writing is meant to inspire.

How do you inspire others? By inspiring yourself first, then writing to express how it feels with a passionate burst of energy and emotion that weeps until it is spent.

How do you inspire yourself first?

I have recently been thinking about be a travel blogger, a suggestion my wife had given us. Or alternatively, a vlogger instead of a blogger, or some combination of the two, such that I had more multimedia experience to connect the senses to.

There’s the answer: involve your own senses first. What does this mean?

It means there is no writer’s block, there is simply being in the wrong place, or being in the wrong time, or being in the wrong state of mind, and all of these can be changed by going to an environment of interior and external conditions that make the mind leap with joy or weep with tears, whatever it is that you most want to feel due to what life has given you.

With that I want to say that I’ve been living more fully now, especially loving my wife and the ability to share small travels to our favorite places together. It’s a good thing to find places that you can call favorite, and people you can feel euphoric when talking with or being around. It’s one of the things that’s part positive reinforcement of the mind and part making physical effort with work and progressive steps in order to improve that environment of living conditions.

God bless and I hope this inspires you to surround yourself with your favorites to do some writing: some favorite music, favorite objects and furniture or vehicles, favorite scents and people and clothes, favorite foods and drinks, favorite colors and weather. Favorite moods by thinking of the things you want most and of the memories that inspire you the most. And then digging in deep with those cleats and getting to work on the motivation and prompting it with the topics that are most in the moment random, or alternatively the most on-point with the things going on in your mind about this crazy thing called life.
