So I have been away for quite some time. I will definitely get into the details in another post (or several). Recently I have been wanting to get back to writing and blogging but just haven’t been able to get myself motivated. But when I logged into WordPress today I noticed the Writing 101 started up again. I had signed up to do the last one but wasn’t able to participate. Well it’s about time I do something about that! I missed day one but that’s ok. I am going to post as I can. I really like the prompt for day one so I am going to just go ahead and post my response anyway.
“To get started, let’s loosen up. Let’s unlock the mind. Today, take twenty minutes to free write. And don’t think about what you’ll write. Just write.
Keep typing (or scribbling, if you prefer to handwrite for this exercise) until your twenty minutes are up. It doesn’t matter if what you write is incomplete, or nonsense, or not worthy of the “Publish” button.
And for your first twist? Publish this stream-of-consciousness post on your blog.”
Here goes nothing
Setting forth on a journey of the mind
what will come of it?
no one knows
for the story has just begun
as I type, I wait for inspiration to hit
like a brick to the head
or would that hinder me?
more like hitting a brick wall
stopped in my tracks
nowhere to go
if I just took a moment
closed my eyes and opened my thoughts
a small segment of a song plays over and over
“here I am
on my face
in awe of Your grace”
I just need the inspiration to finish it
to feel the words
to hear them flow through my heart.
Lord God, please speak the words to me
so that I can hear them.
So that I can play them.
My heart’s desire
is to write of Your grace.
My intentions are cloudy
I want to redirect my line of vision
to You and You alone
Please hear my cry
My heart beats for You
much like the beat of a drum keeping time with Your poetry
