The Writer Digs Within Their Soul
The writer who will not dig deep within their wells of pain for inspiration will never stir the passions of their readers. They must excavate their own fertile experiences and let it empower them to greater depths of understanding of the human condition. Without it, literature will never be more than trite confections.
We are individuals with shared experiences. By tapping into this resource within our own souls, we can circumvent the carefully constructed fortifications of the reader’s world and touch them at their core. Once our core connects with theirs, passions are ignited.
The failure to challenge ourselves leaves untapped potential in our own personal wells. Accordingly, we will never push ourselves to grow. If our writing doesn’t turn us inward, we will never truly reach the personal and protected areas of our readers.
Remember, everything has a price, even timidity.
