We learn through our moods, which ones we want to keep, and which we which simply shed. Just get rid of. Of course you’re expecting me to say “Write it down.” Well, yes, but not right away. Take your time, just for a second. Slow the approach to page, think of where you want to be when the entry is done. Right now before class I don’t think about class. I enjoy the movement across the keys, this entry, this Now right here at this table in one of my most frequent writing spots. Didn’t want to come here, to tell truth. But I thought why not, go with what you know. With writing it’s sometimes the beauty of Newness but as well sticking to the beat you’ve kept.
I share ideas that encourage freeness and essential lawlessness in writing. To shed convention and get out of the curriculum coffin, but as well know where you want to be. Envision your arrival spot, the state you want to paginate. Writing is form, but it’s form that you form, that your prescribe.
Write the mood down. Whether it be awesomely optimistic, of a little downtrodden. What do you want to retain, what do you wish release? Trust yourself and fear nothing, create and compose in crazed ways. I do teach English, but I don’t. I’d rather not. I’d rather just emphasize and punctuate my simple aim of, ‘just write, and write more freely than any teacher has let you’. Writing can’t be taught, and that fact that some of these “teachers” think it can, puts me in a mood. Just move the hands across the page, enjoy your sitting, enjoy your movement and your words. They are yours, no one else’s. They can’t be, even if plagiarized. Chase Newness, embrace your Beat and re-write when you wish.
