The One-Week Daily Writing Devotional
Creatives know how scarce and unreliable money can be, which is why so many opt for unrelated full-time employment so as not to put the stress of a relied-upon income on their passion.
It’s the main reason I like giving away things for free. The One-Week Daily Writing Devotional series runs seven days and serves as a daily opportunity for quiet reflection. Twenty minutes a day, you’ll spend time with a few selected readings, including Colson Whitehead, Oscar Wilde, Donald Miller, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosecrans Baldwin, Jodi Picoult, Diane Ackerman and Rae Meadows.
We'll separate the chaff from the grain, determining who we are as writers vs. who we are as people.
In "Letters to a Young Poet," Rilke writes:
"Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. This most of all: Ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write?"
Must you? If you must, and you want to both discover and get real with who you are as a being -- no religious talk involved here -- then I'd love to invite you to The One-Week Daily Writing Devotional.
Let's take this journey inward together this week. You will make the time.
I can't wait to see what we learn from it.
