Roadblocks to Writing

Ever feel that way while writing? You scream on the inside for help because creativity is not flowing. Or you want to write but you procrastinate by checking your email first or you hop on Facebook for a quick sec. Only to realize you've chewed up all your writing time by NOT WRITING.

There are many roadblocks. Each of us may experience different blocks: distraction, procrastination, emptiness, to name a few. My thought is that the evil one wants to do everything in his power to keep us from using the God-given gifts that we have. You may not think that writing is very important - it's just a "hobby" or something wanted to do but chalked it up to a childhood dream. However the desire to write, to express yourself, still exists no matter how hard you try to ignore it. Well, don't ignore it. Pay close attention to that desire - it's a desire placed in you by God. Embrace it, Trust Him. And write.

But roadblocks will still come. How do you move past them? This is the topic at Pages for the month of February, "Roadblocks to Writing." I hope you will consider joining us every Wednesday in Feb (2/1, 2/8, 2/15, 2/22, and 2/29). We meet in the large conference room at LWCC, room 112 from 6:30-8PM. Bring your notebook and writing utensil. Laptops are alright too, as long as they are on "mute." There's nothing like a quiet writing time interrupted with a loud "ding!" notifying everyone in the room that you just got mail. :0)

The Pages writing community is going rapidly. If you know you will be attending in February, please email me (deAnn) as I may have to get a larger room. I love it!

Hope to see you next Wednesday!

grace & peace,
