Writing for Your Life

My writing may never change the world or receive great accolades.  I am not an activist, philosopher or a scientist.  I don’t even dare to dream of aspiring to the elevated creative genius status enjoyed by J. K. RowlingMargaret Atwood and Zadie Smith, but I do still dream and I do have stories to tell.

For once in my haphazard life, I am focused.  focusedI am on a mission to harvest the characters and plots that have been ricocheting around in my brain for too long.  I am working on discipline but, for now, it eludes me. Every morning discipline jumps into my head, telling me I should structure my day, but I quickly dismiss it and just let rip.  So much to say, so little time.

I’ve been pussyfooting around this passion of mine for too long and now I feel like I am writing for my life.

“Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now.”

Annie Dillard
