Practicing My Practice

I’m trying to get back to writing, but it feels like my right leg did when it came out of the cast and walking boot a couple of months ago. I was scared to bear any weight on that foot. It didn’t feel like it would hold me up. I’ve always had tight calf muscles, and I could tell the difference after the cord lengthening. My calf was smaller, and it looked completely shriveled. But I’ve been wearing my AFO’s on both legs now for a few weeks. I finally feel as if I can stand on them and trust that my feet will support me.

I wish there was something similar to help me strengthen my writing muscles. I think for now, I’ll just have to trust in the daily routine to help do that. If I can’t come up with something–ANYTHING!–to write, I’ll rely on other people’s writing prompts to give me a boost. I just need this structure again. I need to put words out there before I explode. I need to put myself out there. So here I am hoping that my muscles will help me grow strong again.
