Writing is hard but writing is necessary. Living is hard but living is necessary. I do not write enough or live enough. I get stuck in both. Writing helps me figure things out. It helps me pinpoint what matters to me, to reflect on those things and to value them as I live. I do not want to live in this fast paced world. Writing slows me down, helps me see what really matters and it helps me discard the things in life that do not matter.
And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”Sylvia Plath
There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly: sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.”Ernest Hemingway
Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.”Isaac Asimov
