“Simply step out of the way and record your thoughts as they roll through you.

Writing Practice spends the heart and mind, helps to keep us flexible so that rigid distinctions between apples and milk, tigers and celery disappear.

Every minute we change. It is a great opportunity.

At any point, we can step out of our frozen selves and our ideas and begin fresh. That is how writing is.

Instead of freezing us, it frees us.”

~ Natalie Goldberg
