What if Writing were easy?
“A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer,
it sings because it has a song.”
― Maya Angelou
Writing is not easy, and apparently it's not meant to be. I don't know why we struggle to get our books out into the world. It's a vulnerable feeling to write and then show the world what's on the inside.
What if I didn't worry about anyone reading or liking my work? What if I just wrote because the writing of it is healing? So many well known writers have written about the agony of writing, and even more so the agony of not writing.
What if I change the tape playing in my head and delete the inner critics of my past that ghost around? What if? What if I just wrote something, right now?
Catch the wave and write, even it it's just for 10 minutes. GO!
