Dealing with Emotional Fallout
I would preach, and also hopefully practice, that when we are writing about real stuff more real stuff tends to come up. And not always in a good way.
That, to me, means I have to enjoy the act of writing as much as I can. Choose my hours, my implements, my setting, and my preparation with care. I have to really settle into the process, and not only respect it, but enjoy it. Love it, in fact, because it helps bring increasing clarity to our lives.
Then the work gets done and it doesn’t feel so much like work. Does that resonate?
