Let’s Write


Have you ever had so much to say you can barely say anything? That’s how I’ve been with my writing lately. I’ve had so much happening that I needed to write but for whatever reason I just couldn’t get it – well – right. So today I locked myself in my bedroom and said “Self, Let’s Write.” Whether I get it right or wrong I need to get it out.

 

Let's Write | MrsTeeLoveLifelLaughter.com

 

For the past couple of weeks I have had moments nearly everyday where I kept thinking this is a post for sure. I need to write this down. This needs to be shared. I need a release. Still instead of writing it just thought about writing. Every time I tried to sit down and put fingers to keyboard something else ‘needed‘ to be done: breakfast, lunch dinner, cleaning… dance, karate, basketball, cheerleading oh and my most  dreaded chore – laundry! With all of life happening writing simply wasn’t.

 

So here I lay now with my notes app and my phone in the darkness of my bedroom. Writing. Finally. I’m not even touching on what has happened yet still I feel lighter. As I type each of these words into sentences I feel the room it’s making inside. The walls are moving back and I can almost breath again. I was nearly full and close to popping but now – now I can keep going. I’ve made space simply by getting the words outside of me.

 

For me that’s what writing truly is. A release – a way for me to empty out and make room to continue on. There are times when life is moving so fast that my feelings, emotions and words – oh the words – they get to be so many that I simply need to let them out! That’s when I have to write. I need to. Whether those first few sentences are right doesn’t matter what does matter is the write of it all.

 

Who knows? I may never write all the potential posts I had in my head for the past few weeks BUT I’m writing. They may not be the stories I’ve penned within but the words are still flowing and for me that is a breakthrough in itself. I am excited for this not because what I have to say is oh so important but because what I have to say needs to be said and by simply sitting down tonight (or laying…lol) i have broken through whatever was blocking me and now I look forward to

 

What is writing to you…

Therapy? Hobby? Passion or a bit of everything?

    I needed to read this. I have been feeling the exact same way. Writing for me is just a whole other world that I can escape to when my real life is crazy. It's busy, always running kids around to their activities… It's just a nice thing that's all my own. 🙂

    I'm going to share this. Thanks for linking this up at Totally Terrific Tuesday last week. It goes live tonight at 9pm CST. Can't wait to see what else you have to share! Hope to see you there!

      Oh. I’m so glad you came by. It can be a horrible feeling when you can’t find release in a way you normally can. I am so happy to have it though and get past that feeling of being blocked.

      Thank you so much Sharon – I truly appreciate it.

  • Lou Lou Girls

    You brought the best informative post to our party! Thank you. Pinned and tweeted. We feel honored that you take the time to stop by our party. I hope to see you on tonight at 7 pm. We love to party with you! Happy Monday! Lou Lou Girls

  • @nikol_murphy

    This is where I was a few weeks ago. It took a few posts to get back in the groove. Hopefully, I am back. It's amazing that sometimes you don't need to say what you thought you did. Good for you girl. 🙂

  • suzannahkolbeck

    Yup. This is a discipline issue. Elizabeth Gilbert posted "Advice for writers" on her website this week, and it was all about loving yourself (not letting those voices in your head dissuade you) and then getting back to work. I blogged about it this week (#irony). It was much-needed advice.

    Found you on SITS girls Sharefest, BTW. I think we follow each other on Twitter now, also. 🙂

      It can be at times. Mine was more of funk I think. That sounds like a great resource though – I will have to check it out. It seems like there are a few of us who were in similar places…very ironic 🙂

  • Heather

    I have felt the same way so many times! I guess that is why I'm a blogger. 🙂 I used to be a journalist…so I didn't travel too far from my college studies.

    • MrsTee Post author

      I think that is why I’m a Blogger as well…I wanted to be a writer so bad in High School and even College but then life happened. Well now my life happening is helping me to write 🙂

  • Emily la Grange

    So pleased you got it out! I feel your breakthrough through your words. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    I love blogging, and creating content so much, it's great to get the creative juices flowing! x

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes. There is something about letting go of different feelings through words. Definitely therapeutic. Me too! I have neglected my journal writing way too much!

  • Ricci

    I think writing is a little bit of everything…therapy, a hobby, and a passion. While I love writing and blogging, sometimes it feels like a chore and that's when I take a break. My break just may be a day or two or it may be a whole week but I always come back feeling refreshed! I always have tons of blog ideas in the notes section of my phone and I wish I could get to every single one of them and maybe I will…one day. 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      It definitely can be Alexis. I think that may be why I love it so much – it can be anything you need for whatever situation. I do think the \’break\’ gave me a bit of a jumpstart so maybe it wasn\’t so and after all… 🙂

  • Nina

    great post! Writing is definitely a little bit of everything for me. I really need to get better about writing down my ideas as I have them because by the time I sit down to write I've usually forgotten what I wanted to write about in the first place.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Oh yes the ability to capture memories is so priceless. There are things I go back and read and I know without those words I would have forgotten the moment.

  • BritishMumUSA

    Thank goodness I am not the only one who this happens to, the other day i was caught off guard as I was thinking this would make a great post, I was busted for not being in the moment!!! Darn it, and there went the post and the thought too. I promise this year to write, but also be in the moment and more patient. With that I am hoping the writing will flow 🙂 Good luck mate!!!!

    I completely agree, writing is such an escape for me as well. It doesn't even have to be something for my blog. I can escape just by making lists and notes in my notebooks. It's wonderful.

    • MrsTee Post author

      I need to start writing a bit more away from the Blog…I think that may help me as well. Get back to my journals a bit more. It is truly wonderful Alyssa! Thanks so much for coming by today 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      Therapy. Yes, writing can definitely heal the soul. You’re right. Sometime we need to take our writing from being an obligation (for our sites, etc.) to simply being…

      Thanks so much for coming by Adrienne!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Exactly! believe it or not I am not a very vocal person…writing comes so much easier to me than telling someone something. As a teen, I would always write a letter to someone I had a conflict with because I felt my words could express things so much better without my voice or my emotions to get in the way.

    • MrsTee Post author

      That\’s awesome. words have so many different roles to everyone as an individual. It is truly a personal form of expression. i think that way me part of why I love them so. The same words spoken, written and expressed by different people can have totally different meanings and impacts and I feel that is the biggest gift of all I gain from writing and using words.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Really? I think we all reach this point at some time or another. The key is to not stay there too long. Yes! Sometimes getting back to the raw materials…pen paper and you…can definitely help!

  • kimberlybolden

    My 500 Words by Jeff Goins has really helped me in this practice. The commitment is to write 500 words everyday without stopping.

  • Reginia Cordell

    Writing is a bit of both; a passion and a hobby, let's call it a passionate hobby. I've written one fiction novella (available on Amazon) and had a great time writing it. It was a bit easier than penning posts everyday. Penning daily posts takes a lot of time and research which sometimes sucks the "fun" out of it.

      I can definitely see how writing can have a dual identity in our lives. Especially as Bloggers. That is such an amazing accomplishment! Yes, I find free writing is so much more relaxing. There are times when the formality of posts can be a bit of a downer of sort…LOL I struggle when I have so many words and then need to find an image or whatever to match up with it…lOL

  • @MyNameIsAshley_

    Writing to me is more of a hobby. I don't really get to the point that I need to write this down now! I have had those moments before but it's few and far between. Blogging is my hobby and love writing for it, but I know I'm not the best and I do it anyway.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Hobby is good. I think writing for any reason is always good. You get to share a bit of who you are even if that is more of a want than a need 🙂 I think you are a very good writer Ashley…because you allow yourself to show through your words. I love your Weekly Intention posts for that very reason. You show that you live your life on purpose, with goals and intent. Love that!

    • MrsTee Post author

      It isn’t but it is definitely needed. I like that, you’re right sometimes what writing means to you can depend on what you’re writing about. Tanks so much for coming by 🙂
