Buddha Rocks Project and Wrap Up

I want to thank Evelyn and Eric. The Buddha Rocks Project gave me something I haven’t put my finger on yet. How silly, I just learned BuddhaRocks is one word. Seven days rocking—you think I would have caught that significant detail before now.

This I believe: when we write, we have writing thoughts. When we stop, our writing thoughts get overlooked. During the Project, sentences invaded my dreams and images caused forgetfulness.

I sent the David Foster Wallace quotation to my sister-in-law who’s been MIA on the blog front. It helped her. She’s posting again. And in posting, became excited by what she was writing.

The cure for a writer’s block is absurdly simple. String together any two words. Then two more. Write until you feel like writing what comes.

I’m glad you were a part of this round of the BuddhaRocks Project. I hope you’ll participate each time Evelyn starts one henceforth.

Comment by Eric

The same as living when we really don’t see how we’re going to do it, right? Just keep putting one foot in front of the other…until finally you can look back and say, “Wow. I’m not “there” any more. I’m “here”!!
