Nanowrimo Day 3 (2018) Affirmations/Motivation

“I understand that I am a talented person, capable of heroic acts of creativity, and I will give myself enough time over the course of the next month to allow my innate gifts to come to the surface, unmolested by self-doubt, self-criticism, and other acts of self-bullying.”

–from The Month-Long Novelist Agreement and Statement of Understanding

“I am good enough.

I am extraordinary in fact.

I have so much to give.

I am a wealth of creative energy.

I will dive into the depths of who I am.

I will face my fears and limiting beliefs.

I will be curious and available.

I will be open to surprise.

I will let go of fears, worries and doubts.

I will practice again and again, letting that little voice that says, ‘you’re not good enough’ become less and less impacting.

I will treat myself with love, kindness and forgiveness.

I will accept who I am, rain or shine.”

–from Yoga + Creativity by Lacey Haynes

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

–from Dune by Frank Herbert, the Litany against Fear

“When I opened the door, there was a weird blue light coming off the snow. I threw the book into the snow.”

–from Schizophrene by Bhanu Kapil

Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces together.”

–from Zen and the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury
