Squash is often part of a
traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
But I’m not talkin’ food, here.
I’m talkin’ about an unfriendly verb action,
as in to squash.
(the shuts-you-down kind)
What squashes your inspiration?
What squishes your muse?
What obliterates your creativity productivity?
Certain emotions? People? Recurring circumstances? Schedule?
All of these squash,
at one time or another.
(that’s life. squashing happens.)
If one of these things
(emotions, people, circumstances, schedule)
(as in it.keeps.coming.back.again.and.again.
in a bad way),
something needs to change.
Life isn’t only about writing.
(we know this)
But if writing is your heart,
and something is showing up as the squasher
Nurture the heart.
Change the place and pace.
And put people into your life
Rework, re-form, remix.
(there’s always a way)
