Today I thought I’d post a quote to inspire you this week. If you wonder if you’re wasting your time writing. If you feel why bother. This quote should inspire you to press in this week in crafting words.

Joss Whedon strength quote

“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of.” Joss Whedon

Strengthening words

So let your words strengthen you. Journal. Capture your emotions on paper. Write your hopes, dreams aspirations. Write the promises God has spoken to your heart.

Characters within

Create on paper the characters talking in your head. The ones so unlike yourself. Have them walk the streets of places your long to visit or make you homesick. Let them speak the words you haven’t the courage to say yourself.

What are you afraid of

Darkness? Water? Death? Taxes? Parenting? Love? Strangers? Growing old?

Wow! So much to write about. Go Get Started!!!!
