“A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.”
― Thomas Mann, Essays of Three Decades
Some writers wake up everyday and know they are writers. Then there are others who have their writer’s life buried deep inside them. Hiding below social expectations, parental expectations, fear, judgement and whatever else we developed to survive in this cold hard world.
I see you writing. I see you getting pushed around by the pendulum of emotions. I see you dancing around words and styles to find the right way to say the one thing you’ve been trying to say for days. And I see the defeat in your eyes when you feel like, you still didn’t get it right.
Yup, I see all that. but that’s not what makes you a writer. The fact that you did it when all hope was gone. When there was nothing left but to put word to the page, you did it. And you did a damn fine a job of it.
Let’s just say, writing chose you.
