Why Is Writing Such A Brick To The Head And A Fluffy Bunny At The Same Time?

bebadassalready2-3As a life-long writer, creating with the written word is like breathing to me. Whether I write in the self-development or thriller genre, it affects me on the inside, and I see it changing people and things around me. Choosing to write books is one of those things that I’ve experienced as cold, unexpected bludgeons over the head or fluffy bunny moments that I never want to leave. Yes, it can be a cruel but blissful profession… just ask my family who has lost their mama at times. Hell, I don’t even recognize myself after writing marathons. There are the red zombie eyes frozen to the computer, pits reeking from a soap deficiency, and a tummy begging for even a morsel of quality food. And even when I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing or the lack there of. I usually binge on the entire season of Alias when I have writer’s block… works like a charm! Ahhh, the writer’s life…

Oh, I love it, though!

I’ve never regretted writing anything…well, except for maybe a long-winded, sappy love letter or an overtly brutal slam in a text. As a human life, writing can always improve, even redos and retractions may not calm the storm created by the first choice, and there is always another way. That was my deep, philosophical persona peeking her head out of the closet… gotta love her.

I do believe that as we go further into our writing practice we are more able to pinpoint the purpose of a project and execute its full nature and birth into the world. After all, if you keep doing something enough, you get better at it… period. Your instincts come to the surface more easily and unbridled creativity shows.Watching yourself grow as a writer is definitely a “fluffy bunny” experience.

Words are energy. Words are powerful.  Choose them wisely no matter what or why you write. Spill your writer guts here, my friends! Tell me why you write and what soothes and what hurts. Or, as a reader, what do you want to feel when you invest your time in someone else’s words?

PS: I’m uber excited that my first fiction work is now around the corner from a kick ass release!!!! Here’s the blurb about UNAWARE:

unawarepromo1-2Three days of unthinkable horror will either redefine Kari Sterner’s reality… or it will destroy her and everyone she cares about.

She sees their helpless bodies.

Hears their imprisoned screams.

Feels the cold steel blade, the warm rush of blood. 

A gloved hand reaches for the next victim.

But… Kari can’t stop it.

Unaware of her cognitive gifts, Kari needs answers. An obsessed psychiatrist has them but only wants to control her mind and, with it, the flow of time itself.

Mangled bodies pile up in the morgue. Indianapolis detective Ryan Phillips must stop the monster. Kari knows something. He needs her, but someone stands in his way.

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a business transformer for badass women by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre and have another on its way, co-authored an international best seller, and have finally pushed my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie “Ignite Your Ass” Rae

    I always talk about birthing a book, because that’s what it feels like…same idea of pain and pleasure at the same time…it’s a wonderful life as a writer 😉

    • Kellie Rae says:

      Oh, I definitely agree with that, Alex! And, thankfully, we don’t really remember the pain. Otherwise, we would never have babies or write another book again.

    Congrats on the pending book!
    I write because I get a second (or 100th) chance to think through my words. I write because it’s gives shape to my life. I write because it’s who I am.
    Time to finish that next book, for my biz this year.

    • Kellie Rae says:

      Love those multiple streams of motivation, Donna! Way to put your writing on the front burner! I would love to hear more about your book project. PM me anytime! xoxo

  5. Peggy says:

    Why I write – where do I start? To be seen, to be heard, to feel, to remember, to scream, to pout, to love, to paint word pictures…and hell, that’s just for me 😉
