Welcome to Day 2 on the journey through The Joy of Writing Journal. Here I share an excerpt from my journey and I hope you will share something about yours—an excerpt, an insight, a challenge, a joy…
Journaling helps me derive meaning. In this excerpt, I begin to find meaning in my own resistance to writing…
…I pull the rock out of the earth
Scoop my hand in the dirt hole
A slimy worm
The scent of earth
My brain too stupid or lazy to describe the smell
Too dull for metaphor
Too wet to catch fire
WIll I find something? Anything?
