Writing is its own reward.MM900303309
– Henry Miller

Nothing brings me as much pleasure as allowing the flow of words moving from the universal soul through me as words on a page. How incredible it is to look down and see an unexpected manifestation like thoughts becoming visible written with invisible ink. That then becomes the reward in writing for me. I may have an idea of what I want to write but the substance comes from a place unknown – deep down in in the well of me – my soul. How awesome is that! This keeps me humble as I give respect to a power far bigger than myself.

  1. I love how you’ve expressed this, Pauline. It’s amazing how when we write from our heart it seems to resonate within us and with others too.


  2. The best kind of writing happens when your hand moves of its own accord, your heart dictates and it writes.
