I looked at this quote for days before deciding for me questioning is second nature. I'm a writer. I ask questions of people I meet, myself. I was a teacher who loved the Socratic method. Now I wonder if all that questioning wasn't a quest for something else. Stillness.
Stillness is in short order in our daily life. It's hard to be in the moment, still within one's self, when we are barraged with noise, social media, multiple screens on our desks and in our homes, differing shouted viewpoints. It's nearly impossible to be still.
But it can be done. Writers know it. It's when we put our fingers on our keyboards and let our imagination take over. We live for a while within the confines of our minds, creating characters, setting scenes, writing dialogue. It's all there, but it's so hard for it to function, to find its outlet, when chaos surrounds us.
Take time for yourself. Take a few minutes every day, even five minutes will work. to DO NOTHING. Really nothing. Sit. Listen to your heart beat. Count your breaths. At the end of five minutes you will be refreshed. You will be energized. You will be ready to internalize yesterday's lessons, find inspiration in today, and write like heck tomorrow.
