When you think you can’t…write anyway!

This is the writer’s motto. It is a battle cry. A call to arms. And although the road ahead will be tough, you must keep going!

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” 
― Ray BradburyZen in the Art of Writing

Why Write?

The reason we sit, with pen and paper, keyboard and cursor, or any other creative medium, is to get the thought out and then the next one and the one after that. It’s a sort of bloodletting, and the pain feels right.

We may squirm or delight by what we see on the page, but we are dedicated to the process, comfortable or not, we write anyway. We will set no time limits, no word count, no rules…except this one: just write!

Writing is like any other creative process. We take our deepest thoughts, questions, and emotions and bring them out into the light. We place(throw or slam) our hopes and fears, our motivations and celebrations; our deepest secrets and musings out into our external environment and then, and only then, can we see their shape and size and truest intentions.

It is my intention to bring bits of my own experience to the table, triumphant or tragic, ugly or not and to share with you moments of this writer’s life, including the ups and downs of rejection and acceptance. So, if you are weekend scribe or an award winning author, come join me as I navigate through the world of publishing  where the odds are stacked against me.

But you know what…I’ll write anyway!
