Stillness

This is the first week that I have had nowhere to go. Recently I left the corporate world to embark on internship. While I wait for background checks and other red tapes to clear, I have a week to myself.
Life is so quiet.
After getting the kids to school, I clean. I take a break for homework (electives), clean some more, and glance at my WIP (so many ideas!). It finally dawned on me that I finally have time to read.

And it has been awesome!
I have read and reread so much great stuff. Reading is so important for a writer because it has the power to re-energize you. When I read a work that someone has put so much passion into, it makes me passionate about my own work. I feel supercharged to outline, write, and create.
And isn’t that passion what writing is all about.
How do you embrace the stillness in your life?

  1. So glad that you have been able to take some time between your job and your new internship. As you know, I LOVE getting away in stillness and use this time for reading too.
