Set Yourself Free

Set Yourself Free

Easier said than done. Maybe the saying should be: Every once in a while, set yourself free.

I don’t mind the daily grind. Oh, there’s another saying. Don’t mind the daily grind. If you can say that about your life, you’re in a good place. We all need our daily schedules, our routines, our work to earn a living, our commitments, our duties and chores. Life is made up of such.

But every once in a while, we need to laugh out loud, shout for no reason, stare into the beyond, escape into the depths of the forest, play in the water, throw caution to the wind, and let everything go.

I have to say, when I’m writing, especially the first draft, I do set myself free to let the characters be who they want to be, to create the most outrageous scenes ever, to let go. I think it’s one reason I love writing. Within my crazy imagination, I can be totally free. It may also be the reason why editing drives me insane. I have to tame all the wildness that came out so it makes sense. But the freer part is a lot more fun. And if I couldn’t let go and be free to give myself fully to each story, there would be no story worth telling…or worth reading for that matter.

When was the last time you set yourself free?
