I’m not one to watch TV (as some of you may know, we don’t get TV) but my sister who has TiVo invited me to watch NBC’s new show called “The Voice.” It’s similar to American Idol but singers are grouped into teams and are coached by professional singers. It’s surprisingly good.
Well, one song chosen to be sung was Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. I liked this song when it first came out but now it is very apropos to where I’m at now in my writing career. My favorite lyrics:
“Reaching for something in the distance,
So close you can almost taste it,
Drench yourself is words unspoken
Today is where your book begins,
The rest is still unwritten.”
Now, this song is probably meant to be figurative but I take it literally since I write. I love how this song speaks to how nothing is set in stone, you can always change and set your path because every day is new and a chance to start over and do your calling.
Naturally, I downloaded it to my IPod so I can be inspired to keep chugging away, especially now when I’m still questioning what I’m supposed to do with writing. I know I’m supposed to write. But what? For whom? In what medium? How?
