Writing Above Your Head

Writing above your head makes something happen inside; it's a process of self-realization, a self-knowing that Steven Pressfield artfully described as "giving birth to ourselves, to that person we were born to be, to the one whose destiny was encoded in our soul, our diamon, our genius."

Yeah, I know it sounds all flouncy and mystical and cottony, but a person knows what he knows, and this is what I know:  If I write above my head, the work I create is a piece of my heart.
