Welcome to your Friday Morning FYI (wow! a week late edition) – my chance to share observations/wisdom/rants in short, easily consumed form.
In addition to day job work and working on a novel and various short stories, I’ve decided to get a yoga trainer certification. Being all healthy and stuff, you know. In outlining a one hour class, I encountered a similar issue to one with which many writers struggle : flow. The beginning of the session is easy to construct, as is the end, but the middle… that friggin’ middle… is tough. Let’s make that this week’s (yes, fine, LAST week’s) FYI:
We all know the phrase “Life imitates art,” but no one ever said “Living life is like making art”. Not that I’ve seen, anyway, but it’s true. Things we do are like other things we do, but more often than not we don’t see the similarities, the connections, the bond. If you do something well, pay attention to what you did and how you did it, and that goes double for something you did poorly. Recognizing those patterns may pay off in another aspect of your life.
Thanks for reading,
