THIS ISN’T A MANIFESTO. IT’S A GODDAMN REVOLUTION.
Let’s make one thing clear: You ARE a writer.
Anyone can write.
You are only on this planet once. Time is ticking.
Fuel the desire. Starve the fear.
Because you are a writer, it’s your responsibility to write.
How dare you NOT share your story.
No one can tell the story like you.
And no one will die if you make a mistake. (But what will happen if you don’t try?)
Go ahead and be afraid. Feel it. Release it. And take action.
Break free of the bullshit excuses. Claim your voice. Escape the cage.
Make the brave choice, the generous choice.
You are not alone.
Your potential resides entirely in your capacity to get the motherfucking words on the page.
It’s voltage multiplied by current.
Raw E N E R G Y.
Flip the switch, Jedi Master.
Take out your goddamn pen and paper.
You know you want to write. You’ve known for a long time.
No more hiding your magnificence.
One word could be all the momentum you need to build velocity.
So take the leap. Make magic.
Imagine what will happen when you’re no longer afraid of your POWER.
Sometimes we need someone to believe in us before we can believe in ourselves.
Sometimes we need someone to show us our story already exists. All we have to do is shut up and write.
What if you found this page for a reason?
What if I’m supposed to help you?
I learned the hard way. You don’t have to.
This space is for those who are up for what others fear. The ones who are on fire to move ahead.
The ones who are ready to proudly stand on one side of the line and dare the naysayers to challenge them.
Welcome to the beginning, lover.
FEEL. THE. BURN.
