“Write to write. Write because you need to write. Write to settle the rage within you. Write with an internal purpose. Write about something or someone that means so much to you, that you don’t care what others think.” – Nick Miller
There are a million different reasons to write something. The narcissistic belief that what you have to say is important to others, the selfless ideal of helping save this world through art and beauty…
Fame. Money. Love.
Heartbreak. Depression. Solitude.
All of them are important reasons.
But there’s something about writing just to write, writing to get the words out of your head…
Writing because that’s what you do. Writing because you won’t have it any other way.
If you feel strongly about something, then you can write about it.
All you have to do is silence all the other voices that keep telling you stuff like people won’t like it (who cares?) or it won’t sell (again, who cares?) or it’s been done before (everything’s been done before, or so it seems until something new comes along).
Just write. Type those damn words. There will come a day when you’ll be thankful for that.
