“A word after a word after a word is power.”
"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. ”
Sure, I've got loads of writerly insecurities. I think having a creative mind tends to fuel the insecurities sometimes. We are supposed to be good at making things up after all, but for the last IWSG of 2014 I wanted to finish as I started back in January when I said my key words for the year were going to be positivity and focus. There's been a few wobbles, but on the whole, I think I have striven to maintain that goal. I haven't quite got to the place I hoped to be by the end of the year but I am still confident that I will get there in the end. Here's hoping that 2015 will see me realising a few goals and fulfilling a few of my dreams.
"This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It's that easy, and that hard.”
