When I cook…

When I cook, I feel all of my creative juices flow through my body. I feel energized, free…expressive. I feel like I can do anything, when I cook, but not when I write. When I write, I feel trapped by this internal need to please everyone –to obtain perfection. When I write, I am so worried about the syntax. e.e. cummings always warned us that this was the problem people have. I am stuck in my academic writing structure, and I cannot break myself out of it.

I know that I can write my novel however I want because it is fiction, but I am so dead set on getting everything just right that I am scared of just writing.

Imagine how much more fun it would be if I just allowed myself to let my imagination run wild.

Like cooking.
