We should write because we are spiritual beings and writing is a powerful form of prayer and meditation, connecting us both to our own insights and also to a higher and deeper level of inner guidance as well.
We should write because writing brings clarity and passion to the act of living. Writing is sensual, experiential, grounding. We should write because writing is good for the soul. We should write because writing yields us a body of work,
a felt path through the world we live in.
Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that—but you are the only you.
