Where Dreams Meet the Business of Writing

It’s April! That means it’s time for the ‘BLOGGING A to Z CHALLENGE’. Everyday this month (except Sunday) bloggers will be blogging to a theme, using different letter of the alphabet – running, of course, from A to Z.

I’m blogging about WRITER’S ZEN: Where writing and meditation meet.

Meditation and positive affirmations can directly benefit our lives in many aspects. It also can benefit our writing — in the creative aspects, our productivity, our career as an author, our feelings about writing and much more. I’m making a conscious effort to make more time in my life for meditation. I’m also practicing using some of these techniques to improve my writing. Through the A to Z blog challenge, I’m sharing some of mine with you.

Read through the affirmations for each subject. Some will probably resonate with you better than others. Maybe all of them will. Maybe none of them will. We are all on our own paths, having diverse needs at different times. Even on our own individual journey, we still require different words and messages on different days.

Pick one or two thoughts that speak to you. Sit quietly for a few moments. Repeat the affirmations to yourself. Say them aloud. Reflect on how these thoughts affect your life and your writing. Are there roadblocks in your life that is stopping the goodness from entering? Are we in any way allowing this roadblock to exist? Are we putting it there ourselves? Open your mind to allowing new possibilities to present themselves.

If a phrase feels more needed, copy it onto an index card or post-it note. Keep it with you, in the car, or on the computer. Repeat throughout the day, reinforcing the message.

Give it a try! Let me know if these help your writing, or if you have any thoughts on affirmations that would be useful to use in your daily life.

Happy Writing!

My writing earns abundant income for me and my family. It provides for all of us.

I am paid well for my words.

My writing earns substantial income, enough to supply all of my needs, and more.

Every month I earn more and more money pursuing the writing endeavors of my choice.

When I choose to freelance, my clients value my writing and show it by prompt and generous payments.

When I choose to write books, I find the right publishers and editors. I receive generous advances.

I receive healthy and regular royalty checks.

My contests entries win, bringing me even more financial gain.

  1. What a wonderful A to Z theme. I’m hoping to return daily so I can get more affirmations.

    • Thanks for stopping by Nana. I hope they help. I know I’ve seen an improvement, then I sometimes I seem to slip back into old habits. Every day is a new day and a new chance.

  2. fabulous affirmations, glorious image- looking forward to reading how they hatch during the A-Z

  3. PS have you done the 40 day practice with Randolph Price?

  4. I am looking forward to reading your posts. Many of us authors don’t take care of ourselves. I plan to incorporate your affirmations into my daily writing life. Thank you!

    • Thank you Sharon! You’re right, we don’t. We keep plugging away, writing and writing, and often forget to replenish our souls.
      I find (at least for myself) that I don’t always give myself credit for what I do right, only tear myself up for what I perceive that I’ve done wrong. And I don’t always recognize that my words have worth. Hence … the affirmations I’ve been incorporating into my life. I hope they can help others also.

  5. Wonderful blog you have here! Writing and meditation–two things I always mean to do more of. I’ll be following you along on this A to Z challenge. 🙂
