Stimulating the Mind
1/29/2012 5:48:35 AM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

When one is a writer it is so important to keep the mind stimulated. A writer uses up much inner wealth and this wealth needs to be replaced. It is like priming the pump of the well--the well runs dry with constant use and has to be primed in order to re start its flow. Priming the well needs an input of water to get it going. It is like that with the mind. When we run out of ideas through constant use we have to add some ideas to start the mind thinking and working again.

There are many ways to do this and they all need an open mind.

Looking out the window to observe nature in its many forms gives us many ideas. The busyness of animals and birds and the changing weather and seasons gives us much food for thought.

Reading newspapers, magazines, books of all genres, and the Bible can be very stimulating to the mind and hold all sorts of ideas for many kinds of projects.

When the satellite dish on our roof is plugged with snow as it was yesterday no picture can come through on the television screen. If our eyes and ears are closed to what is around us no signal can come into our minds and no writing whether blog, poem, or story can be produced from which others can gain pleasure or insight.

I have been borrowing e-books of fiction for my Kobo e-Reader for a few months now and have found it a great source of entertainment and stimulating ideas. Yesterday, I searched for a spiritual reading book in the on line library. They didn't have anything under a spiritual genre but I did find such a book under the self-help category.

I now have another source for refilling the idea well and for priming the pump.
