Reading my Soul


I had a thought today, as I was driving, about how I write. I pictured reaching into myself, taking my soul in my hands, and turning it around, examining it. Sometimes I feel like Quorra in Tron: Legacy, watching Flynn draw out a corrupted line of her code to examine the damage. I draw out lines within my soul and it is from these bits and pieces, these lines and stories, that I write.

As I write, I take my soul in my hands, its glowing orb warm and pulsing with my own heartbeat, strong and delicate at the same time. It is the heart of me, the seat of my being, everything that makes me me. When I am done here, I will put my soul away until it is filled with inspiration and bids me take it out and turn it over again.

  1. I love this!
    I’m working on a book at the moment where real people who write share about writing. It’s to inspire people to write. I’d love to include some of your words and pictures in the book. Your name, age and location would be included and all credit would go to you. I’ve also got a bunch of writing questions that you would answer and anything that resonates with me would go in the book.

    This is what I’d love to include: I had a thought today, as I was driving, about how I write. I pictured reaching into myself, taking my soul in my hands, and turning it around, examining it. I draw out lines within my soul and it is from these bits and pieces, these lines and stories, that I write.

    All good if you’re not interested. Just thought I’d check.
