It’s amazing how when you give yourself to writing from your heart, experiences flow from your subconscious into words and expressions you almost didn’t know existed within you. It seems as if you are being taken over by a Higher Power that you really have no control over. It’s scary and it’s wonderful at the same time.
You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot—it’s all there. ~ Maya Angelou
Then you realize how you as a writer have been processing experiences all these years – storing them as sights, sounds, tastes and smells. It is imperative that you go deep within yourself and bring out these memories. Share them. Let them resonate with someone else somewhere.
