Today I am going to talk about “Continuous Writing”.
Today after work around 1:45pm, I went to a library to continue to do my writing for and with God. I was still committing to my goal of writing one blog post in two days, but I told myself that if I had enough idea or inspiration, I would exceed my target by writing one blog post in one day. And the idea or inspiration, that were gifts given by God, enabled me to continue to write my piece today.
Fast forward to around 2:40pm, and I was inside the library, sitting in a comfortable chair, and prepared to continue to write my piece today. Not having any specific expectation, I was only armed with the “fighting heart” to my writing. Then I started my writing. And immediately I knew what was to come for the next twenty minutes. I was typing at a very fast pace, and the idea just came up as I was writing all along. The idea was clearly, I believe, from God, because I felt the special “pop-up” that went to my mind, like a white bird flying and arriving at my mind. Not having any doubt, my strong faith told me that the idea would continue to arrive at my mind, as long as God willed the inspiration.
As I was writing in a very fast pace, I was only doing a fast draft of the blog post, with the idea that came along. Some of the words, phrases may be repetitive, but the new idea, new words just flowed along so I kept writing long passages without stopping. Once I had an idea, I continued to write down. Then once I had another idea, I continued to write down. And for the next twenty minutes, I was writing in a very fast pace and continued to do so with God’s idea, I believe.
As I had continued to write along, when was the time I had to stop writing? How would I know when was the time I could stop writing, knowing that my idea for today had run dry? I did not think of this scenario all along my writing, as I knew that I would be led by God. After writing, with concentration, for 20 minutes, I then suddenly had an instinct, telling me that it was time to stop. And at the same time, I remembered that this morning I had a dream that supported this. I knew I had made the right decision to stop today. I then went home. And after sleeping for a while, I started to do my planning for the next eight days.
