I wanted to share this post that I wrote last week on the WordServe Water Cooler with my friends in the StoryWriting Studio, just in case you might be “frozen in time.” Hope it encourages you to keep writing! Blessings!
These words challenged my heart. Am I “frozen in time”?
The writing process helps me work through the painful trauma of my “unspeakable” experiences. It enables me to view my story from a more objective viewpoint, melting my frozen numbness, offering me hope beyond the icy boundaries of emotional bondage.
Helpful process. When I write about traumatic events, I often sense fear closing in on me like the twisted, frozen branches of a tree—wrapping its bone-chilling claws around me, choking the inspiration right out of me.
When I work on certain writing projects—like my book proposals—I freeze. I can’t control my thoughts, and chaos emerges, stealing my creative energy and organizational skills.
