I MUST write from my soul every day.
(But I'll admit - It's not always easy...)
be honest.... it can be a struggle to write, and especially
to write from your soul. I try to do it every day. Sometimes
I'm successful. Sometimes I'm not.
What I do know is that when I'm consistent, my writing is
deeper, more soulful, and I connect with my audience.
I started writing from the soul with my first story when
I was five. It was a riveting, very soulful story about a
bear lurking (not like I actually used the word "lurking"
when I was five years old, but, hey, I can pretend) in the
woods ready to eat any little girls who happened to wander
Riveting, isn't it? Powerful, wouldn't you say? Intense and
My writing did get better, and I even became an English teacher,
thinking I could save the world. I taught English for two
years to seventh and eighth graders at a junior high school
in Texas, and I hated it. Teaching in that public school system
became more administrative and counseling in nature, and grammar
and literature were at the bottom of the list for kids who
were dealing with gangs, pregnancies, and all sorts of family
situations at home.
Several years later, I started my own virtual assistance
practice where I helped my clients with brainstorming, systems
and processes, product creation, and, yep, you guessed it,
a whole heck of a lot of writing.
I've written everything from technical manuals to ezine articles
to social media updates to marketing materials to sales pages.
I realized was that people struggled with writing, and so
much got in the way - thinking it had to be perfect, not sure
where to put the comma, what great buzz word to use.
But what everyone wants to do is to write powerful, compelling
words that get their audience to take the action they want
them to take (click the link, buy the product, learn more).
Hence, Writing From Your Soul. I do it on my blog,
my journals (sorry, you can't see those!), and everything
Whenever I think about that question, "You're given
six months to live; what do you do?" my answer is write
(and a few other things, but writing is always at the top).
Or "Quick! Think! What is your deepest desire?"
And if I can help you in any way to write from your soul,
please reach out. Don't struggle alone.
May we all write from our souls.
I'd love to connect with you!
