I believed in studying just because I knew education was a privilege. It was the discipline of study, to get into the habit of doing something that you don’t want to do.
Frankly, you need to get over yourself. It might sound harsh, but that’s seriously what it means [1 Corinthians 10:31].
We are a culture that relies on technology over community, a society in which spoken and written words are cheap, easy to come by, and excessive. Our culture says anything goes; fear of God is almost unheard of We are slow to listen, quick to speak, and quick to become angry
When I think about writing, It makes me happy, keeps me motivated and persistent enough to keep trying. I just cannot stop and I don’t ever plan to, even if I discover that I am the worst writer in the world. I went through my handful of rejection slips but I still kept at it. I’ve been working on my novel Tangled and my stage play Dust in the Wind during a time that I had a lot of things that hit me at once. It wasn’t the best of times and I found myself crying a lot more over situations that were out of my control. When your heart is broken more than once, it tends to overshadow and cloud your mind. You think, is this the last time? Should I even keep trying to fit in, love again orwrite for an audience I don’t even have? Since then I was glad that I didn’t let the fake friends, the heart breaks and the pains of life get in my way. And when I found out that those people who hurt me in the past, actually were ‘jealous,’ that I was doing so much better w/o them and writing what they wished they could write, I knew that was an even better reason to keep at it. Writing is good therapy and helps me move on to better times. I encourage others to write, because I feel it helps release things and makes people feel better at the end of the day. Maybe not everyone is destined to become the next Stephen King or JK Rowling, but I truly think everyone has a voice inside them that is beautiful.
