Words are timid animals. Ignore them a bit and do other things. They will sneak up to sit in your lap. It's what words want to do.

Actually, I think the idea of writer's block is flawed, as it too heavily emphasizes the product, rather than the process of writing. Ideas are always connecting, consciously and subconsciously, waiting for their time. If you do cause a block by stressing about writing, the words will come in a deluge when they're ready. (less)

I believe what we call "the muse" is really the subconscious mind making sense of the world. We can train ourselves to notice when ideas come together in a new and interesting way, and write them down. I recently completed a second collection of poems; this one is focused on the nature of existence. The book came together very quickly - in only three months rather than the three years it took to write Moon Full of Moons. It happened quickly this time because I think the ideas had already been churning around in my mind for some time and were finally ready for me to write about them. Ideas snapped together like puzzle pieces as poetic phrases and epiphanies came like a whirlwind. Before I knew it the book had written itself. Writing doesn't always happen like that but it's wonderful when it does!(less)

Kat Lehmann, Small Stones from the River: Meditations and Micropoems

“THE FEAR OF IT

They say that
resistance
to something inevitable
makes it seem worse
than it is. Maybe the trick

is to give in,
try to increase the worry,
bend like a tree in the storm,
give pain its due,
find the center of it and look at it plainly,
turn it carefully
in the palm of your hand,

and realize it can own only so much
of you,
unless you give it more.

It is a balloon
that can get only so big.

Anything more is just the fear of it.”
Kat Lehmann, Moon Full of Moons

“Soul work is not a high road. It's a deep fall into an unforgiving darkness that won't let you go until you find the song that sings you home.”
McCall Erickson
