Tonight I’m having trouble finding words.
I write not knowing where I will end up. I just know I need to start somewhere.
So, I open up a blank page on my WordPress app and start writing.
I take a chance and let the words spill on the page because once I start writing something important will reveal itself to me.
I just have to show up and write.
Even if it’s not very good.
Even if it’s incomplete.
Even if it feels like it’s something better left unsaid.
Because writers need to write every day.
Even when they don’t feel like it. (Especially when they don’t feel like it.)
And I make my writing public.
I write because I must.
I write for my student writers.
I write for myself.
How about you?
