Diary of a bad writer – Week 85

October 13th, 5:00am. – This morning sleep has not been easy. My mind wonders if writing matters. I’m confident in my ability, but sometimes we need validation. I Matter. You Matter. Our Writing Matters.

Just Keep Writing!

    I wish you never had to doubt that, Darnell. I never doubt that for you. Your unique story, your words, your contributions to this world absolutely matter. What you create is a gift. 100% you ALWAYS matter, my friend. xx

    I understand your worries. Sometimes we think that if we are not living off book sales, we are not doing it right. I know I do, sometimes. But you know what? Our writing DOES matter. When we share it with others, it makes them feel all sorts of emotions and potentially gets stuck in their heads for a moment. We might not know, but our writing might have an indirect impact on their lives – they use our writing to make certain decisions. And most of all, it matters to US. Don’t you feel … worse when you don’t write at all for a while? I know I do.

      Very true. I’ve been inspired by your work and others. I feel guilty when not working on something. We have to believe that it does matter to ourselves to accomplish anything.

    We know not what seeds we leave behind, which of those take root, and which of those bear fruit (not a quote, just a quip – but I like it! See?)😁

      I probably ripped it off, but I don’t remember from where…an errant burr left by some other writer that attached itself to my melon? 🤷‍♂️
