I checked my email this afternoon and found notification about a blog post by K.M. Weiland entitled “The Only Good Reason to Write.” As I’ve mentioned in the last few blog posts, I’ve been struggling with depression. Seeing Weiland’s title was enough to make me smile because I knew she was going to have something positive to say. What I didn’t expect was how real she was too. It was just what I needed to read.
Her words seemed tailor-made for me. Much of what she said resonated with me even though I have yet to publish anything and there’s plenty more work to be done before I’m ready to launch my fledgling novel out into the world.
The following quote is what is still ringing in my ears: “…in the act of creation, you are adding something to the world rather than just taking.”
Thanks K.M. and all of the other writer-bloggers out there who continue to share their journey.
