Alive-est by Sam Davidson
Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind. If we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
When did you feel most alive recently? Where were you? What did you smell? What sights and sounds did you experience? Capture that moment on paper and recall that feeling. Then, when it’s time to create something, read your own words to reclaim a sense of being to motivate you to complete a task at hand.

I tend to feel at my most alive when I am talking to and help others. I was recently a panelist at the Writers Guild of America West, and as usual, I had a great time. I love answering questions. I love interacting with people. Most importantly, I love spurring others to action. Helping them gets started always helps me to move forward as well.
In many ways, I am already using this action in my work. It is other people’s enthusiasm that helps me to discover my own. It is other’s action that helps me take action of my own. I hadn’t realized it until I started writing this, but I am already using their energy and the good memories of the past to motivate me to work on the next big thing. Good to know that Davidson recognizes this as an important thing to do.
