I want you to take a journey with me real quick.

Imagine the ideal book you want to read. A story to fall in love with! Dynamic characters, great plot and settings you can see in your mind’s eye!

Now, imagine you writing it.

You, yes you.

The book you want to read, you may have to write. Toni Morrison reminds us that.

Get to it.

Love & Ink,

There are so many people that go through this life and never leave a record. Don’t be one of those people.

If you call yourself a writer, part of that job is to leave record of thought or moments.

Don’t fear that title. Don’t fear that responsibility. Don’t fear the words or what you will make them say.

You can do it.

With Love & Ink,

Encouragement Pages-10/09/2019-Fearless Or Fearlessly

Being a writer will always remind you of a consistent dichotomy: humility and power.

Humility because there will always be a feeling, a moment or a situation, where you –even for a moment—are unsure.

Power because you have a skill to change, record and recreate the world around you.

Today you have two options.

You will either write fearful. Or fearlessly.

Chose wisely.

With Love & Ink,

Fear of writing is this.

Forsaking Energy Against Risks.

Remember this as you write today. Writing is a risk. It will always be a risk! When you take something from your head, and push it thought the kinetic fury of your hands, that is a risk.

Plotting and planning cannot compensate for everything. Although, that is a good strategy. But, as trust the wisdom of Nora Roberts:

“You cannot edit a blank page.”

Don’t let the fear win, beloveds.

Write. And keep writing.

With Love & Ink,

Writers’ senses are always a little more keen than others. We see the world three ways:

How it is

How it could be

How it could become

Today, look at the worlds and circles you inhabit. Examine the spheres in which you move. I bet there’s a story there.

With Love & Ink,
