There are times in your life when the freeway gets closed and you’re trying to figure it out. GPS keeps taking you back to the freeway, or places unknown. The car is passing roads that aren’t on your GPS map and you know if the banjo music starts you are toast.
I know. It sounds crazy pants, doesn’t it?
But you can write your own way.
You might not get published. You might self publish and not sell enough to make money. I know those are the dreams, the goals, the reason many park but in chair. But it’s ok to write what you want, what you enjoy. You don’t know where those secret little scribbles that you only share with your very best friends (If them) will take you.
Sometimes those secret scribbles take you in a direction you never knew existed.
Sometimes it’s where you hone your voice, cut your teeth on the truth your soul wants to release into the world. This is art. Our art. Shouldn’t we be writing what brings us joy and makes us giggle or touches our own heart first?
You find out that those secret scribbles that you never knew where to send have a place in the world.
So. Go forth and write your own way.
Who knows where it will lead?
