How Writing is a Lot like Love

I've been in a relationship with writing since I was about four years old.

We've had our ups and downs along the way, like any long-term relationship. There were times when I filled journals and papers and Word documents with words and other times when I didn't write for months at a time.

Writing is a lot like love, a lot like a relationship that requires effort and commitment. But the rewards are great.

Sometimes writing is just an everyday thing, a commitment, like running errands or making dinner. And other times, it feels new and inspired and sparkly, like a great date or a good conversation. It's both familiar and not.

Writing frustrates me sometimes. I can't get the ideas in my head into words. I can't express how I feel exactly right. I can't get my point across as eloquently as I would like.

Writing exhilarates me too. When the words come together easily and clearly and it just feels right, I find joy.

This month, Sarah and I will be sharing inspiration to help you cultivate your own relationship with writing... so February's theme for our Create.Compose.Communicate newsletters is fall in love with writing.

If you haven't signed up yet, our first newsletter of the month arrives in inboxes tomorrow (Thursday). Sign up here!

Check out Sarah's blog, Inspiration-Driven Life, for her thoughts on this month's theme.
