Falling in love
Once upon a time, perhaps not long ago — one year, one month, one week, one day — you felt a creative urge overtake you. Seemingly, it came from nowhere and whispered in your ear: release me. It longed to enter the world, to take shape and live and breathe. It spoke to you. It knew you.
For a moment you paused. You felt the planets shift as your focus shifted. The important tasks and filler of everyday life fell away. Poof. Gone. It was just you and your Idea, alone in a lovely world of your creation.
You began to write — on paper, at the keyboard, in your mind. You let yourself go and flow and before you knew it, your Idea began to write you. And you fell in love.
This love remains. It is as powerful as a first kiss. Awkward, passionate, heartbreaking. Memorable. The kiss — your Idea — longs to be relived, to move from once upon a time to now.
So open your heart, let your creativity overtake you. Whisper in its ear, “I hear you,” “I love you,” then prove it. Write.
