May 13, 2015, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Write to Life

By Darrell Gurney | Blog

“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.” –Kristin Armstrong

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
