Bites From Today's Class

The following lines were written today in my class that I am teaching in Warren called Releasing The Writer Within: The Master Class. This is the 3rd class in this series, which began on March 14th, 2009. If you read this blog, have never taken one of my classes, and become interested in sampling a class, all you have to do is email me and say, “I read your blog. Can I check out your class?” And you can try one class in this series for free!

These lines were pulled out from larger pieces that were written during our warm-up. I call these little nuggets "genius lines"– they just show up in spontaneous writing, surprising the writer and reader in their wisdom.

Each worry is a bite out of our spirit.

I’m planning my next sentence.

I’d like to meet the person who said 'life sucks and then you die' and ask him or her how do you know?

I need to have the perfect level of angst to write.

F-ck it. I’m late.

What does my brain want to do? Shut down.

My disjointedness is my wholeness

And from last week...

It feels normal to be misunderstood.

He misunderstands my silence.
