Julia Cameron's writing life - an introduction and welcome
I' ve recently read the right to post - an introduction to the world of typing - by Julia Cameron." "What this work will do when I have done it well enough is to speak to you about typing for the purpose of typing, for the pure, genuine pleasure of siding.
Or in other words, this is less a "how to" but a " why" one. But why should we send it? because it is mankind's way of doing things. Our word says it all. It is important to be able to write because people are spirit beings and it is a strong way of praying and meditating that connects us both to our own insight and to a higher and more profound plane of inner leadership.
Let us be a writers, for the act of life is brought to life by the clear and passionate spirit of the writer. It is sensuous, experienced, grounding. I think we should start thinking about it, because it'?s good for the mind. Let us should start thinking about it, because it is a piece of work, a felt journey through the way we are in. "Below you will find important extracts from the volume which I found particularly informative:
That' s why most of us try to be too careful in our work. We' re trying to do it'right'. It' much better to be a writer if we don't work so hard on it. To me it'?s like a good pyjamas - convenient. People in our society often disguise their letters in army costumes.
When we remove the term "writer", when we simply return to the act of hearing and calling what we have heard, some of the precepts vanish. There' s an organically shaped one, a shaped one that is intrinsic to what we observe, listen to and try to put on its side.
Form is part of what we hear. If we just let ourselves be written, we get it "right". "The loneliness of not being able to describe. Failure to type generates self-obsession. Self-possession is blocking the link with others. Self-possession is blocking the link with self-writing is like looking at an inner compass. I' m the one who didn't get enough written last night.
Anyone who writes from "Discipline" takes a considerable amount of risks. The writings from the disciplines invite extremism: "I have to do this or I am a fail. Composing out of disciplines opens up a source of emotionally charged blackmail: "When I' m not typing, I have no personality. "Disciplined writers also take the chance to make the least open and fanciful part of themselves, the part of them that strikes a timer, rather than skyrocketing.
"Dedication " is a term I choose over the term "discipline". When we want to deal with the long term, we want to feel at ease in the relation to it. When we refer to our letter as "should" rather than as a desirable good, we run the risk of seeing our creative union as an ungrateful marriage: We are there, but we do not want to be.
" What a lot more healthy and happy when we disregard the counsel of this wise man and write "it" - all "it" - to me: the mistakes, weaknesses, ruffles, imaginations and weaknesses that make us people. To be more wearable and to be more adaptable, I like to write. To be something that can fit into tears and tears, I like to write.
But I don't like it dominating my whole being. But I like to fill my Iife. As a writer prevails in a lifetime, relationship suffers - and not by chance also letter. In a space closed off from the rest of the worid by our own important thoughts, when it comes to typing, we are losing the stream of our lives, the stream of new thoughts and the stream of inputs that can form.
Yes, we need a lot of room and a lot of free written material, but we may not need as much room and a lot of free day as we think. Instead of being a personal matter "shut off" from everyday living as the remainder of the globe, the letter could be seen as an action best integrated into and not separated from everyday living - such a way of thinking of writing heresies.
" T too often, when we race through our lives, we become a "hole", not a "whole". To" integrate" our experience, we have to consider it against the wider screen of our lives. This is not the case when it comes to typing. If you want a typing job and are willing to do the work to get it, chances are working with you, not against you.
" "I have given myself a "Write first and freely" policy. "I want you to sign every day, even if it's just morning pages. Adjust a watch to half an hours recording only. Ask for the readiness to read - and then to read. "To be truly flesh, we all have the right to make it.
All of us have the right to do so. This is a very recommendable reading in the areas of communications and literature.
