Thursday Thoughts: Universal Happens

To be so hard, writing is pretty simple when boiled down to the basics. All a writer has to do is make it happen. Okay, you can stop laughing now. I laughed, too, when I first played around with this message from the Big U to make it work for a craft post. But think about it. Yes, crativity and imagination is involved. Yes, craft and ability are involved. Yes, there’s research and characterizations and settings and plots to plan out but in the end, what is it writers actualy do…

You can make anything happen, Silver..

After all, who do you think put the stars in the sky?

Who do you think teaches each bird to fly?

And who do you think I mean when I say, “Me, myself, and I”?

Life, good –
The Universe

P.S. YOU can make anything happen, Silver.

Isn’t that how it works? A writer gets an idea. We stew over it for awhile, filling in the blanks, and then we sit down and start streaming words from our fingertips. We put stars in the sky and teach birds to fly. We make it happen. Just like the Universe says. Easy peasy, right?

  1. Writing IS easy. Writing well, so that other people can understand it and want to read it and then read more of it… that’s the hard part. And for me, the more I think about writing well instead of just writing, the harder it becomes. But those times when the story is flowing and the fingers are flying is a high you can’t get from anything else in the world. Dang, I miss that.

      You are so right! And yeah, at the moment, I’m really missing it too! Day by day, the vision improves–looking into the distance. Up close–which is where I do most my work? Not so much. Hoping the appointment on the 20th while give me a clue on prescription so I can get back to work. This whole adjusting borrowed readers and watery eyes after about five minutes is a pain. Literally. I have books to write, people!

      Psst I miss your writing too. I’ll be around if/when you get back to it. ❤
