You set your own hours, make your own rules, and get all the glory and responsibility. And especially as an independent author, you are in control of the work. I think that's exhilarating. (less)

If it's based in burnout or fatigue, I'll take a break, or find a different mode of creativity for a little while. I'll also make sure to fill my well (in the words of Julia Cameron) by taking in lots of good art, writing, etc. If the block is based in fear (which almost 100% of my "blocks" are), then I'll keep writing, because the only way out is through. Fun? Not really. But necessary, for me at least.(less)

“imagine the desert
mothers, with hair tangled
tighter than their theology
and breasts that flowed milk
and mystic wisdom. they
knew how to draw the singing
sigils in the sand, how to dig
rough and bitten fingers
into desiccated dirt for water
to wet the lips of their young.

women of hips and heft, who
learned how to burn
beneath the wild and searing
sun, who made loud love
against the star-flecked threat
of night, who knew that strength
is not always a matter of muscle.

imagine your ancestresses,
the prophetesses of the arid
lands, before these starched
traditions and pews too hard
to pray from, who bled true
ritual and birthed their own fierce
souls at creation's crowning --”
Beth Morey, Night Cycles: Poetry for a Dark Night of the Soul

“I stand in my own power now, the questions of permission that I used to choke on for my every meal now dead in a fallen heap, and when they tell me that I will fall, I nod. I will fall, I reply, and

my words are a whisper
my words are a howl

I will fall , I say, and the tumbling will be all my own. The skinned palms and oozing knees are holy wounds, stigmata of my She.

I will catch my own spilled blood, and not a drop will be wasted.”
Beth Morey, Night Cycles: Poetry for a Dark Night of the Soul

“we have forgotten that we were born
of celestial cataclysm.

we have forgotten how to dance
bare-footed on the earth to the cadence
of our souls. we have forgotten the ritual
fires and the acrid tang of holy smoke
on our tongues.”
Beth Morey, Night Cycles: Poetry for a Dark Night of the Soul

“Writing, real writing, should leave a small sweet bruise somewhere on the writer . . . and on the reader.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés

“At least I understood that writing was this: an impulse to share with other people a feeling or truth that I myself had. Not to preach to them, but to give it to them if they cared to hear it.”
Brenda Ueland, If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence and Spirit

“It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

“My idea of God is not a divine idea. It has to be shattered time after time. He shatters it Himself.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

“Her absence is like the sky, spread over everything.

But no, that is not quite accurate. There is one place where her absence comes locally home to me, and it is a place I can't avoid. I mean my own body. It had such a different importance while it was the body of H.'s lover. Now it's like an empty house.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
