The writing journey is an interesting one. You will experience beautiful moments. You will also experience moments that you’ll want to forget in a hurry.
Sometimes being a writer makes you feel like you’re on cloud nine because you know with your pen, you can write anything that you want to. Other times, you question your talent because the words are not coming out as you want them to.
Then there are also every day life experiences that make you question whether it is worthwhile to be a writer. You feel like dumping the cause for something more lucrative.
There will also be moments when emotions hinder you from writing. The words are in your heart but you can’t just put them on paper.
Whatever the case, you must realise that everything you go through is important to your story and journey as a writer. Your experiences, both the good, the bad and the ugly, form the content that will shape your writing. They are the stories that will inspire your readers and keep you connected with them.
So don’t despise any experience. Nothing that happens to a writer is ever wasted.
