I just finished reading some posts on Susanna Sturgis’ blog entitled Write Through It in which she addresses writing, editing and “how to keep going.”
I loved her J is for Journey post from the A to Z challenge where she shares one of her mantras.
Your writing will teach you what you need to know.
…the catch is that you have to keep doing it. My hunch is that a fair amount of what’s called “writer’s block” stems from the cautious mind’s fear of those subconscious places where reason has to relinquish control. The fear is totally justified because, as Le Guin wrote, the journey will change you.
I believe these quotes marry well with the quote in my post on learning through reflection. It’s only through uninhibited reflection that we are able to write in such a way as to show the depth of what we’ve learned.
