“I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful – for all of it.”
What are we “writing” about life today?
Is it a regurgitation of yesterday, spitting out complaints of what the world did to us, or have we learned of new areas to grow ourselves into?
Is it a recitation of old stories that remind us and others of who we are and who they are, or is today’s a creative writing class, where we get to make it up the way we want it to be.
We’re always writing the annals of our life experience. Are we being particular — or evenanal — about what goes into our annals?
Got creative writing?
“Every story I create, creates me. I write to create myself.”
–Octavia E. Butler
