I came across a passage written by Anthony J.W. Benson that I like to share with my fellow readers. It talks about writers and their struggles.
“Writers are a courageous lot. Often embattled by confusion, distraction and persistent dissatisfaction, they fight through pain, sweat and tears, as well as the unforgiving blinding glare of the blank page, to bring their thoughts forth. As the internal war rages, they are capable of great victories, and great defeats. Yet, in the face of creative adversity those who choose to break free and follow the beacon of truth, emotion and passion have the indefensible power to emancipate themselves, and thus the reader, with their bravery and well-chosen words—a singular, yet shared, freedom of being truly beholden to no one, and nothing, except their soul that calls to them.”
Did his words speak to you, move you as a writer?
