….The Category for when I absolutely cannot contain myself and simply must write.
The Category for times like now, when I just got back to the handy little motel room with a dear friend of mine from the spa!
Which spa, you ask?
Sahara Spa in Moose Jaw! The home of heavenly hot stone massage and rejuvenating facial treatments. Plus more! (However I haven’t yet experienced that ‘more’, but if it’s anything like today I’d very much like to!)
Now, it was during the relaxing hot stone massage of heavenliness that I got a strange tingling in my fingers. They twitched. “I want to write!” they said. To which my mind replied, “About WHAT!?” And they had no reply, just an irrepressible itch to write ANYTHING! A compulsion is what it was.
So here I sit, wet-haired, relaxed, freshly massaged and facialled, and writing. And it’s absolutely phenomenal how easily the words are coming. Sure, they’re not saying much, but they’re THERE! I feel revived. It’s as if a part of me that was hiding decided to come out. Hello, lost little writer! Goodbye writing block and silly inhibitions. The more I write, the better my writing will become.
I’m also under the impression that the more I spa, the more I’ll write.
Too bad blogging doesn’t pay $189 a page so I can spa daily.
However, I do recommend spa treatment to any blocked creative! The ultimate relaxation really helps unlock that door to inspiration if you let it. Pure, uninhibited, free flowing thoughts, you’re exactly what my fingers were itching for.
