Encouragement Pages-09/27/2019: Be Gentle With Yourself

Writing is hard.

Writing about some things are more horrendous than others. More traumatic or trauma inducing than others.

Today, I want you to own the space and body you inhabit as you write. I want you to be present in how you feel—no matter the genre.

I want you to use that visceral memory for setting, character development, fill in plot holes—anything! Above all, if you need to take a break because it’s intense? Do that.

Writers need their mental health too.

With Love & Ink,

JBHarris
