Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘How to Write a Movie in 21 Days’ by Viki King.
I pray, “Dear God, IN A WORLD… of creative self-expression, what is to be said of our liberties?”
After my prayer, I opened the book to page 30 to find this passage:
“Go to yourself. If the character seems to be you—then jump in and make him you. In other words, don’t hide or camouflage his desires and feelings. The idea is to find and show the real feelings, because they will tell you what is true. Inner Movie Axiom: There is no writing that is fiction, except maybe bad writing. Write from your heart. Your heart is smarter than your head. Write the movie that’s already starring you.”
I think this is a central reasoning toward what led me to publish my first blog post about an accepted calling to live my life with authenticity for a purpose beyond anything I can understand. I don’t know why I was called to do this. And that is OK. It is a freedom inside of an assignment. What is your calling, your assignment? No matter its beautiful purpose, love its liberty.
