I hope you’re all having a wonderful day/evening. I just wanted to say this – for all of my extraordinary fellow writers out there – you can do this; you can and you will write that story. We are writers – that means we have the power to make a difference; to change the world, with all but our words! How incredible is that? That that book you’re writing right now – that book could be the next world bestseller. That quote that you just wrote down, that alone could save somebody’s life one day – that quote alone could give someone the hope to carry on.
So if you ever feel like giving up, just remember, you started writing for a reason. Look at J.K. Rowling and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Harper Lee, Tolkien, look at Virginia Woolf – they two were once just like us – full of doubt and fear, and suffering, but they took those things and they transformed them into beauty; stories – stories that are still standing tall on shelves all over the world. So hold on, friends, we’re all in this together. It’s a long and bumpy ride, but it’s always worth it in the end. You won’t be here in hundreds of years to come, but I can promise you, that if you put your heart and soul into it, your books will be – So write them.
