This is day 2 of my 3 DAY, 3 QUOTE CHALLENGE, as nominated by my friend Tarnished Soul https://tarnishedsoul.wordpress.com/
The theme for today is WRITING. I have posted before about how writing works as therapy for me. It makes me happy and takes my mind off the problems while I am at it. I always loved reading and consider myself a proud bookworm. I’ll read anything and lose myself in the story.
Writing came from the idea of sharing what I was going through (here) and the stories I create in my head (Wattpad). This blog is 100% me and the book is fiction, but still a reflection of me and my beliefs.
On to the quotes:
One thing I learned is that there really isn’t right or wrong in this world of writing, be it fiction or reality.
We want to tell a story and it will never please everybody. The only choice you can make is be true to yourself.
It doesn’t matter if people can’t see your face. They will feel your words and they will fall in love with them only if they speak your truth.
I feel this quote in my heart and in my bones. I was in agony and the pain only lessened when I started sharing my stories, both the real and the fictional one.
I get so much back from the people who read them. I made friends, not followers.
Every person who is touched by my writing brings me closer to healing.
Writing is a gift and a privilege and I feel more alive than ever when I write.
I don’t take it for granted. It requires dedication and time until recently I thought I didn’t have. I make time for it simply because it’s worth it.
