Can I be honest with you?
Writing is some of the hardest work I have ever had to do. Due to the desire I have for expression, language and words, I keep at it. I bend words, I learn new words, and I have the insane desire to show other people what I can do with those words.
Being a writer means, I hope to master language. I hope to push through doubts and darker thoughts to do what I love to do. Even when I don’t love to do it! This is the hope that I have for you.
I want you to have the boldness to look at a blank page and give a piece of your heart to it. I want you to be brave enough to record accents, portions of story and portions of life to the work. It is important that you know and remember this craft is a process. It is a craft. It is one of the most amazing things you can possibly do–if you are willing.
As you push towards the end of the year, remember to be gentle with yourself. Generous with your words, and remember their are 24 hours in a day. You can do it–if you desire to do.
I believe you can! Go get, dear one.
