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.

Encouragement Pages-08/19/2019-Begin The Beginning

The scary part is always the start.

The scary part will ever be not even the part where you decide to begin, as Stephen King advises. It will be where you decide you have an idea you want to explore. When you decide you want to take a daydream, a random thought, and stretch it to a reading reality.

I want you to know picking an idea is scarier than actually writing about it.

But write anyway.

With Love & Ink,

Encouragement Pages: 06/10/2019-The Scary Parts




It’s always going to be scary right before you start a WIP. It is always scary right before you put pen to paper. It is quite scary to start a new work! There is this mix if awe and anxiety and excitement. But sometimes that anxiety engulfs every portion of excitement.

But don’t listen to the anxiety! Don’t listen to it! If the idea is there, keep it! Save it! Work it! But don’t let it go.

Keep writing!

With Love & Ink,
