…Give Thanks

There is a rhyme and reason to creativity; this thrusting of magic and letters and colors to make the world better.

Not everyone can do it!

There are people in the world that desire such creativity, and are devoid of it. They copy it, and never have one original thought. But you, dear one? You, my fellow oracles/writers/storytellers, there are worlds inside of you.

Universes.

Peoples.

Languages.

Lovers.

The doubts are to be acknowledged and released–never held or kept. If they are kept, they become weights and anchors.

Be brave, dear ones.

Write.

Encouragement Pages-11/04/2019

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,

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,
