Writing takes a lot of pluck. Putting together a piece, whether it be true or fictional, and structuring it in such a way that the reader is able to comprehend (you stand the risk of it not being received the way you exactly intended) is hard work. Sure, we have this amazing thing we call “talent”, but in order to perfect your craft you have got to practice. Some ideas will just come to you, and then flow out of you as if you were being used as a messanger by something greater from a different realm, other times the “creative juices” don’t flow so easily so you have to put some work into it.
You see, being an artist means you are forever healing your own scars and at the same time endlessly exposing them to the world – through your work. You are to face your demons head-on as well as celebrate your victories gloriously. That can all be emotionally draining yet liberating in parallel.
Discover yourself and everything around you. Break down those walls you use to box yourself in. Explore and develop in ways you have not imagined yet.
Seek. Learn. Teach.
