Writing is an Act of Courage

stained glass window

 

“Writing, therefore, is also an act of courage. How much easier is it to lead an unexamined life than to confront yourself on the page? How much easier is it to surrender to materialism or cynicism or to a hundred other ways of life that are, in fact, ways to hide from life and from our fears? When we write, we resist the facile seduction of these simpler roads. We insist on finding out and declaring the truths that we find and we dare to put those truths on the page.

“To get ideas and to write well, you have to risk opening yourself.”

    • Ah, yes Pam, it would certainly be easier no to confront ourselves on the page, but then, it would also be boring. I’m right with you on that one!
