Waking up at 4.30 am – a couple of hours before my alarm was due to go off this morning – I was wide awake and my mind was racing, full of clear, sharp images and a story to tell. I would usually just head straight back to bed, but not today. I did try but the dream I’d had was pushing to be written. I’m trying to be more creative, allowing my imagination to surface more, so when I woke up this morning with the images from my dream so clear in my mind, I just knew I had to start writing immediately. How I will develop my story, and whether I post it, remain to be seen but for now, I’m enjoying the excitement of being more creative, seeing where that journey takes me.
I guess if I want to be more creative, I need to run with my ideas and see where I end up. I guess its not just my blog that’s evolving, but me too. I should enjoy the ride; hopefully its not too bumpy.
As a child I was creative, I was always writing stories in notebooks – they were never kept so I now have no idea what those stories were, or even if they were any good. Years later, my mother confided that she always thought I’d end up as a writer because if I wasn’t writing, my nose was in a book. I can remember her telling me to go play outside – I’d grab a book and find a quiet spot to hide and read. Books did and still do capture my imagination. It now appears blogging is my gateway back to that passion for writing creatively which I’m once again starting to explore. Lets hope I don’t have too many 4.30 am sessions.
