What I was doing was…

Doing some exploration of the parts of my life I want to draw of in the novel. Using one of the questions I created yesterday, I departed it in my head as I sat in silence for five minutes, trying to quiet my mind and listen to my gut for what came up -then I write for 15 minutes. The sitting in silence helped make it feel a bit more spacious and having a bunch of questions from which to select an appealing provocation gave a flexible but structured way in. Feeling that was a decent piece of work at the end of an already busy day, and the sitting in silence has made me feel a bit more peaceful in general -think I might be a bit emotional too about what I wrote. Will do another of these explorations tomorrow.
