Anxiety

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 2:57 pm

ok-write  Writers can get anxious quickly once they lift their pens. Anxiety can come from not knowing what to do with the white horizon staring back. Anxiety can come from fearing someone will read what you wrote and worse, hate you for it or ruin a relationship. Anxiety can come from what will drop onto the page once the writing begins. One never really knows what is going to fall out onto the page when the writing begins. So what about this? Since anxiety is present in a big way, start with the anxiety. What are you anxious about and why? Tell every detail about what you think will happen and how that will affect you. Then, write what you would do if the thing you fear happens and stand up for your right to write your experience. This is really huge for most people who want to write. Work on through it now.

Keep the pen moving,

Jan
