"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." -Howard Thurman
Don’t ask what is selling and go write that. Look inward to what draws you, things that seem to want figuring out, questions that called to be explored. If you write what draws you in, it will draw readers in, too.
Don’t write only what you already fully understand, write what you need to learn to understand. As you process—in journal, memoir or fiction—you will experience insights you can discover no other way.
“If you want to write you must have faith in yourself. Faith enough to believe that if a thing is true about you, it is likely true about many people.” –Real Live Preacher
