This topic for this week’s Encouragement Pages really spoke to me. Look for this to be an expounded on topic later on. -JBHarris
Make no mistake, you are human. Writing is a superpower, but you have to be able to rest as well (the rest after a full day of writing is a gift, let me tell you!). What I want you to remember is it is not the time you wrestle against, it is the hindrances to your own imagination.
If you have a day where you cannot write because you are physically tired, or due to the demands of the day, that is fine. By all means, rest!
What I am saying is when you are attempting to write about a specific topic or in a specific genre, and feel that you don’t have the ability to–this is what I want you to examine, dear one.
You do that by asking these three questions:
1.) What am I scared to say?
2.) What makes it scary to say?
3.) What is stopping me from saying what I believe needs to be said?
If you can answer these, they become the key to unlocking the can’t. Take this key, unlock your imagination, and write.
With Love & Ink,
