“Advice? I don’t have advice. Stop aspiring and start writing. If you’re writing, you’re a writer. Write like you’re a goddamn death row inmate and the governor is out of the country and there’s no chance for a pardon. Write like you’re clinging to the edge of a cliff, white knuckles, on your last breath, and you’ve got just one last thing to say, like you’re a bird flying over us and you can see everything, and please, for God’s sake, tell us something that will save us from ourselves. Take a deep breath and tell us your deepest, darkest secret, so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not alone. Write like you have a message from the king. Or don’t. Who knows, maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who doesn’t have to.”
― Alan W. Watts
Write like you mean it. We all have something to say. Write as if you are writing for yourself and no one will ever see it. Write with abandon and leave nothing out. We all have a story or to share that of our inner characters. Do you hear voices? Write what they are telling you. Speak your truth. Or theirs. Whatever you do, just write!
