Discomfort as a Source of Inspiration

Posted on May 20, 2013. Filed under: Blogging, Staying-With-It, Writer-Tools, writing, Writing-Exercises, Writing-Tools |

Nobody seeks out discomfort, but if you have it then why not make it work for you.

Write about it. Describe it. Capture your beliefs, thoughts, feelings, actions, and consequences into words. How many ways can you write it, and re-write it, to describe your misery du jour?

Even if it is temporary, if you “bottle” your discomfort this way, you can capture an essence that can be far more vivid than anything you might possibly write when the air conditioner comes one.

Whenever I was suffering in anyway as a child my mother would tell me to save it so I could use it on stage someday. I suppose that applies to writing as well.
