The writer in you is ____________.
If you filled in that word, what would it be?
Maybe the writer in you is terrified.
Maybe the writer in you is bold.
Maybe the writer in you is fresh, newly born.
Maybe the writer in you wants to throw stacks of papers at the walls. (Or perhaps drag a stack of MS Word docs into the trash bin on your desktop.)
Maybe the writer in you needs fresh vision, new life, movement in stagnant waters, the shock of cold winter air to revive your senses and renew your pen.
I know where you are.
I know where you are, because I have been there.
I have been writing for as long as I can remember and have wanted to be a published writer since I was 12. I wrote my way through high school and got my undergraduate degree in English Language and Literature. Perhaps the craziest of all these things is I have wanted to learn to diagram sentences since I was about 8. (But we’ll put that aside and come back to it in a few weeks, mkay?)
It’s not easy to call yourself a writer when you’re putting words together between making a living or giving small children a living.
But there’s a writer in you nonetheless.
One day, the words will pour out of your soul so quickly your fingers won’t fly fast enough to catch them.
One day, the words will meet the people who needed to read them and it will be grace like an anvil to their faces.
One day, the words will flow only to heaven; ’twill be an act of worship.
One day, you will write the words you were born to write.
