The first stage in development: writing

Yesterday I read something insightful that I hadn’t thought about in regards to writing daily. Basically, most good ideas start out in written form; books, films, stories, music even, starts out in written form, and from there they can be developed. Then, having your ideas out in written form means you can more easily work with and on them.

If you’re in the practice of writing daily, sure you’re going to have a hell of a lot of perhaps useless stuff, but if you have volume, mixed in there would be a hell of a lot of great stuff that you can work with. Either way, it starts by having these ideas in written form (depending on the media there may be exceptions), and it’s a great practice to have, especially daily, to clear your mind, and maybe discover something special.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
