The Untold Story

"But how?" my students ask. "How do you actually do it?"

You sit down, I say. You try to sit down at approximately the same time everyday. This is how you train your unconscious to kick in for you creatively. So you sit down at, say, nine every morning, or ten every night. You put a piece of paper in the typewriter, or you turn on the computer and bring up the right file, and then you stare at it for an hour or so. You begin rocking, just a little at first, then like a huge autistic child. You look at the ceiling, and over at the clock, yawn, and stare at the paper again.  Then, with your fingers poised on the keyboard, you squint at an image that is forming in your mind -- a scene, a locale, a character, whatever -- and you try to quiet your mind so you can hear what that landscape or character has to say above the other voices in your mind."

Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon, come out
from behind the clouds!

Golden Tales

'Golden Tales'

If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a pray-er, a magic-bean-buyer
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!
- Shel Silverstein

"Flux" n.

The natural state. Our moods change. Our lives changes. Our feelings for each other change. Our bearings change. The song changes. The air changes. The temperature of the shower changes. Accept this. We must accept this. "
