The writing you have to do is because you want to do it!

Writing is one of those things which are both solid and fluid. It can be done at any time, any where, and even with anyone! And for that cause, for that reason, it is the thing by which grants unnamed people immortality or grants hope to other places.

Write because you want to.

Write because you need to.

Write because…you can’t help it.

You can do it. You must.

April 2023: REVAMPING

The scary thing about writing is what it will require you to do: CHANGE.

It will require that you look at what you want versus what you have, and consider if it can be better, if it is working, and can it be better.

Writers an be stubborn.

Writers lie.

Writers will say what is working when it is not actually working.

Writers require a unique support, like all artists do because of the demands on our creative energies.

Writers also are–adaptive!

The plasticity of writing allows us to look at what isn’t working, what is working and change. But this ‘change’ is what we run from, and need to confront. By confronting it, we allow room for us to look at what we are proud of and want to keep, and examine what we can (and should) do better.

Embrace the process.

Embrace where you are going.

You can do it.

The fact that you have not given up is demonstrative that you will don’t want to. What does that mean, exactly?

It means that something in you wants this writing–and you are willing to see where it will take you.

As Nikki Giovanni said, “If you love it, it is going to work.”

You can do it.
