Inspiration #1

Day 21: 40,035 of 50,000

Instead of disturbing you with the fatigued working of my brain, a moment of inspiration for this winter night.

Let go of everything when you write, and try at a simple beginning with simple words to express what you have inside. It won’t begin smoothly. Allow yourself to be awkward. You are stripping yourself. You are exposing your life, not how your ego would like to see you represented, but as you are as a human being. And it is because of this that I believe writing is religious. It splits you open and softens your heart to the homely world.

Natalie Goldberg from Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within (Shambhala Library)
