Stephen King said the scariest part is right before you begin.

I concur.

The scary part sometimes is just starting. The picking out the idea, the topic, or person is scary. But allow me to be your lighthouse a moment. All those things–people, places and things—are yours to command! Your imagination is yours.

When you write, do so as if no one is looking at you, or watching. This is essential. If you write like someone is watching you, nothing of substance will come from you.

Write as if the world may never see it. From there? You will have the power, and certainty, to share with the world.

With Love & Ink,

One thing before we start this week, dear one.

I know that admitting that you are a writer is a little crazy-feeling. The same feeling you get when you unlock a door. I know that you don’t totally understand. I know that you may not even know where to begin! But, I want you to embrace that.

It’s not a curse.

It’s not a deficit.

You are a writer. You have ideas, and people, and worlds within you. It’s time for you to let them out.

With Love & Ink,

JBHarris
