Memoir Update: Feelings, Wants, and Wills

#feelinglongingvision #susanstrasser #susanstrasserblog #amwriting

Are you a writer? Ever need a prompt to get those creative juices flowing? Well, my friend Jae at jaehermann.com has suggestions… start with what you’re feeling, longing for, and how you envision accomplishing what you desire. So I did this exercise about my memoirs-in-progress.

I FEEL pain. My hand hurts from writing my memoirs for five hours yesterday. Writer’s Cramp! I got tested for carpal tunnel syndrome this summer, so I know its not that, so perhaps arthritis? Who cares? Feel the burn! Write, write, write!!!

I WANT to be validated for this work with book sales. Duh! several hundred dollars? Several thousand dollars? Several tens of thousands of dollars? Now we’re talking! Universe, I’m open!

I WILL write today like I do every afternoon on my memoirs, six days a week. I will “suit up and show up” as is said (and I’m proud to say that I am fully dressed, even as a temporary stay-at-home-Mom in Covid)

I WILL write for at least an hour a half when I write this afternoon. I will do my best. I will type, revise, copy and paste, correct, type, repeat. And…

I WILL write my best damn third draft of my memoirs that God wills, One Day At A Time. One Hour At A Time. Peace!
