A period of silence often precedes a storm. Similarly, when a writer feels that his creativity has subsided and his mind has been subject to a draught, a pouring rain of productivity may just be on its way.
A writer must never lose hope. As long as the mind exists and is connected to a body that is able to engage in the expression of thoughts, a writer’s words will reach the reader.
The body can pause, and the arm can rest. But the mind moves forward, no matter how slowly. The flow of thoughts can slow down for a while, but it can never come to a halt.
When writing becomes a challenge because of fatigue, there is no reason to worry. A writer must simply put the pen down and ease into a deep meditation.
It is because of our mind that we can wade through the waters of our inner self, search the depths of the ocean, dig deep beneath the earth’s crust, and fly out into distant galaxies. When stationary and free from personal engagement, it may be time for the conception of a new idea.
Silence is not a foe, but a friend. Let silence, occasionally, take over the life of a writer. Through this silence there will be the sound of new creation.
