In life we all have our times where we will either jot down a quick note or store something away in the corners of our minds for later use. As writers I think it’s even more important to write down those sudden thoughts that come to us. It’s in those thoughts that the true magic of our writing comes out. Our hidden story ideas that get written on the page.
I still remember the day about three months after Mari died where I had all these thoughts floating around in my head needing to be written down. It’s like they were calling me. So I sat at my computer and typed them all out. Those very thoughts became the first entry on my daughter’s dedication site. To me that’s pretty awesome. Ever since that day I’ve opened up more through my writing. It’s been cathartic and healing all at the same time.
