Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.
How is your writing flowing today? Is it coming in a strong, steady stream? A slow drip? Or is your faucet stone dry?
Nothing can happen in my writing if I don’t sit down and begin. There are a million things to do besides writing. Today I am at my desk and one chapter is here that did not exist when I woke up this morning!
Madeleine L’Engle said, ”Inspiration usually comes during work rather than before it.” I have found that to be true in my writing. I don’t get much done if I wait for inspiration.
What about your spiritual life? Is it flowing? Dripping? Dry?
When I make time to sit still and pray and reflect on scripture I find a connection to God that I would have missed in my busyness. “The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” The time I spent with God this morning gave its benefits in peace and confidence.
Are you writing today. Have you had time for God?
How is it flowing?
