Searching for the light

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.

Marcel Proust, 1871-1922

…The story in my head is getting louder…

…So why am I still looking for the right way to let it out?…

…Words are coming that do not please me, where are the ones I feel in my heart?…

…Head down, keeping at it, hoping to see the light…

  1. I would think that the way to go is to let the words run free, and then look and see what you have. Head and heart often tell very different stories, and only you know which one you are ready to tell now.

  2. Words that don’t please you — they are there for a reason…let them out and then decipher them later when you are editing…even the ones that don’t please you have merit! keep going! xo

  3. I just finished reading Ann Lamott’s Bird by Bird and she says she is often surprised by her characters. That she discovers things as she writes and the story doesn’t always unfold the way she thought it would. Maybe you just have to write your way through it? Keep believing- keep writing!

  4. That quote is one that has been a favorite of mine for a long time.

    I totally understand trying to find the right way to let that story out. The best advice I’ve been given is to just keep on writing and put all those words down, because, as my friend tells me, that’s the way writing really is. Messy and kind of disheveled and not what we think it’s supposed to look like.

    Good for you for keeping at it! There are bound to be moments of light…stunning in their beauty.. just as your photo reveals.
