Inner Music

March 16th, 2012

“To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the inner music that words make.” Truman Capote

As a writer, do you at times feel as though writing and breathing are one and the same? Writing is like reaching deep within the innermost part of your soul and pulling out that thought that has been buried within you for so long that it’s impossible to dislodge it without leaving a permanent scar. There is pain. There is regret. There is hope. Once that innermost pain is dislodged, the soul can breathe and it can flourish. What was previously considered a painful experience, a thorn in your side, is now therapeutic and refreshing.   Such is the life of a writer.

Writing from the soul creates the inner music that soothes your soul and generates life that flows through your creative fingertips as words dance and leap from your soul to your mind, into your fingers, to finally rest upon what was a virgin white piece of paper.

Writing is one of the few things on this earth that can be frustrating and exhilarating at the same time. It releases imprisoned emotions and fills the once-stagnant air with a refreshing scent that fills your nostrils until you become light-headed with excitement and anticipation of the yet unknown finished product.

Writing is like breathing. There is no known substitution.  Writers must write!
