I'm Bloggin' Today: Therefore I am

I am participating in the Writing Contest: You Are Enough, hosted by Positive Writer.

I get it, writing is tough. You are literally creating a masterpiece from a blank page with only your creativity as your medium. Yikes, put it that way, and the task seems insurmountable.

But, it’s not.

You know why?

You’re a writer.

Do you know how I know?

You write.

It’s not a matter if you believe it or not, it’s a tangible fact. You write therefore you are a writer.

Look at it this way you are getting the opportunity to write, to tell your story. You get to be a writer; you don’t have to, it that is what you want to be.

Know this; only you can write your masterpiece. Only you have your voice, your thoughts, your experiences, your inspirations that only you will bring to your words. Trust yourself to get the words on the page. Little by little you make progress. Skyscrapers are built one brick at a time. Races are won one step at a time. Manuscripts are written one word at a time. That is all you need to continue, one word. Could be that one word turns into one sentence, then one paragraph. But, it really only starts with one word. One word is all you need to know you made progress over the day before. These words, it doesn’t matter if they are the right ones at first. You can’t create a masterpiece if you don’t have the clay to mold, to shape, to refine, to perfect. Just getting words on the page moves you forward and that is the direction you want to go in.

Suddenly that insurmountable task is well within reach. You don’t need to believe that you are a writer, you need to know it by doing. You write therefore you are a writer, now go forth and create your masterpiece.
