My Writer’s Heart Seems Empty

My writer’s heart seems empty. I’ve been silent for so long. I sometimes wonder whether I should bother trying together my “gift” back or if I should just move on to the next “scene,” the next skill. On the one hand, reflection on past experiences provides fodder for new explorations. So don’t forget the past; draw instead on it’s colors to fill out your pallette.

On the other hand, as long as you look to memory for your inspiration, you will be constrained by the parameters of previous experience. Rather than drawing on “dead” memory to create, think how much more lively your creation if you seek out new sensations and novel experiences.
