There are caves all over the world, yet here in Writerland, we have our own cave. It’s a sanctuary high in the mountains where you go to rejuvenate. If you’d like a practicing meditation on writing, read on.
Some caves are filled with stalagmites and stalactites while others have water or ancient drawings. If you’re lucky, your cave will have all three.
The cave in Writerland is a retreat to come to when you need a break from real life. It’s a place to go when you need inspiration and restoration. Eagles soar above the Cave where the Muse lives. It’s a hike, but when you get there you can crawl into the cave and sit next to the pool of molten chocolate. Fruit grows inside the cave next to the fairy knoll.
What can you learn in the cave?
Anything you want to.
Whenever you feel as though you’re at the end of your writer’s rope, come to the cave and restore your writing powers. Consider it a practice in meditation and focus. If you don’t like my construction of the Writing Cave with its pool of molten chocolate, create your own.
Create a garden, a hiking trail, or a tropical beach with coconut and banana trees.
This part of my Writer’s Cave is dedicated to you, the writer who needs a quiet nook to explore tools, articles, and more. Here, I explore the writing craft as I live it. Come and join me – coffee or tea, everyone is welcome (if you stick to the end of this page, you’ll find a secret).
