Dare to be a Writer

Dare to be a writer. Don't write because you have to, write because you want to. Write because you have something to say. Write because you can't help yourself. Write because you have a story to tell. Write because you are inspired. Write because you are happy. Write because you are sad. Write because you are excited. Write because you are confused. Write simply because you are.

Dare to be a writer. Keep a journal or three. Write about what you think. Write about what you don't understand. Write about your dreams. Write about a conversation you had. Write about a conversation you overheard. Write a bio for a new character. Write a poem about the sandwich you had for lunch. Write about a happy memory. Write about someone you miss. Write about why you love to write.

Dare to be a writer. Read for inspiration. Write with passion. Write because you can. Write because you live for it.

Delve into the elusive arts of language. Be bold enough to share your story with the world. Breathe in the amazing things around you and strive to put them into words.

Be a writer. I dare you.
