We only want to say what we saw, what we heard, how we felt, what we did and the details of our lives that affected us deeply and made us who we are.We only want to say what we see, what we hear, how we feel, what we are doing or are afraid to do. We only want to siphon lessons from our experiences in the hope that others might discover some faint glimmer of hope and inspiration for their own lives. We write to ask questions, hoping to uncover answers in the ocean of words.
Additionally, our experiences tell us that the simple act of writing can provide clarity, bring relief and comfort for our anxious and aching hearts. We also know that with each additional day that we write through what stalls, frightens and blocks us, our confidence will increase – even if only by a single drop.
Moreover, we face and fight our challenges to bathe in the joy of writing.
The writing is what is important. And when we do it bravely, honestly and passionately, we may see the other side – publication, fame and fortune. Even if we don’t, deep down we can and will have the satisfaction of knowing that we gave time, effort and heart to the process, the practice and the pleasure of writing.
