Writing Naked

Writing is exposing yourself.

Your mind, soul and heart.

Your fantasies and reality merged as one.

You can be anyone you want to be.

You can even the score with anyone you like.

You create your own monsters and heroes.

You can create worlds.

You play God in a literary sense.

You create life.

Mine told me half joking this morning that I should put in my bio on the back book cover that I write naked. Sell more copies to male readers. LOL.

It got me thinking about how when I write with no cloak it is a sense of freedom.

Only when you go back and edit it, in your other hat,  do you feel less free.

You read it through the eyes and ears of your potential readers.

You judge yourself and make the appropriate changes.

Hemingway said ” Write drunk, edit sober.”

I challenge you to write naked, edit clothed.
