Have you ever tried to build a story line, create a character or run through dialogue in your mind only to be defeated by the cacophony in your head?
Arguments you would have won if you’d just said (fill the gap), things to do, plans to make, reminders to be reminded of, insults aimed at yourself or the person next to you…
The definition of MESS is matter out of place. The same definition can be applied to NOISE as sounds out of place.
If you want to build a story line or create a character or run through dialogue in your mind, you need to clear out the noise. You need to still your mind. You need to shut up. You need to BE QUIET.
The brightest creations come out of stillness. It’s where What’s Possible lives. Connections are made in its silence. Worlds are created there.
Your characters are shy. Few will stand up to the chaos that usually fills your mind. Give them the time and space they need to come out and be discovered.
Happy writing today.
