Writing As Soul Work

You can approach writing a memoir as soul work or you can approach writing as a depressing, meaningless struggle.

Like many readers of this blog, I myself struggle with the concept of what it means to me to be a writer.

Notice I have written “what it means to me.” I am not much concerned with how other people regard me as a writer. Don’t get me wrong: I want to be read and I want to sell my books. But, I am not concerned particularly with how other people view me personally. What I am concerned with is how I view myself.

Writing as soul work involves an evolving sense of self.

    Great insights and inspiration! At 71 years of age, working to find the space, time, and energy for the writing that my soul seems to be nudging me towards. Many Thanks for your work!

    Rodney, Thanks for your appreciation of the Memoir Network. It always encourages me to hear that our work is helpful.

    Like finding funds for investment is eased by taking the money out right away for the future (off the top so to speak) instead of waiting to see what money is left over, finding time to write can work that way also. Choose a writing time and use that slot as the core of a daily/weekly schedule. The rest of the day will have to work around that writing slot. The commitment can be as little as 30 minutes daily, but, if the writing time is adhered to, you will find your writing “compounds” over time. Before you know it, your memoir will be written and you will be preparing your launch party!
