Savor Writing

“I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” ~ Flannery O’Connor

I savor writing.

It makes me focus, is therapeutic, and helps me relax!

I find myself so in the moment that I often neglect other things because I am soaking in the pleasure of the process.

The way my fingers fly across the keyboard as I share my private thoughts.

The swivel of my chair as I sit back and critique what I have written.


I get so totally immersed in what I am doing that time slips away, other thoughts disappear, and I just can’t (don’t want to) stop!

Why do I write?  I like the way I feel when I write.  I can often see things more clearly and can grasp life in ways that might otherwise escape me.

Even though I have much to learn about writing (and can only dream about becoming a real writer), I consider it such a treat to sit at my desk and actually savor this process.

  1. Hi, found you via Senior Salon and this previous post really connected with me. I too savor writing. I just choose my Word-of-the-Year and it is SOAR… which stands for Savoring, Optimistic, Activating, Resilient – 2 to be and 1 to do this upcoming year. Yes, I will savor my writing this year! Thank you for the connection of savor to my writing!
