Telling the true story of the world in interior monolog

We all walk around with an interior monolog. For most of us, it’s a jumble of surface thoughts like…

What should I make for dinner?

Did I pay the internet bill?

Why did this asshole cut me off in traffic?

Man, I shouldn’t have eaten that shrimp taco.

It’s estimated that 95% of our thoughts are repetitive. Many of them are negative and unproductive. If we wrote from this place, we would torture our reader.

But there is another monolog, the one we keep with our inner creator. This is the one we write from.

Tapping into this deeper layer gives us peace. This is why writing is such a wonderful escape. We dive beneath the choking stream of shallow thought and swim through the aquifer of the extraordinary.

Have you written from this place today?
