Diary of a writer

I am going to do a new thing this year called "Diary of a writer" where I write down thoughts in a journal before I start my daily writing. I won't post entries every day, just when I have something interesting to share.

Sometimes the entries will be pep talks to myself.
Sometimes the entries will be glimpses into my brain.
Sometimes the entries will be peeks into my soul.
They might be ugly, they might be beautiful, but they will always be honest.

I might sound discouraged.
I might sound sad.
I might sound hopeless.

And it's okay - writers feel those things quite frequently. It's what we do with those feelings that's important, and writing them out is actually helpful, I've found.

Here's my first one:

I will also be posting them on my tumblr blog, just FYI.


  1. This is true--writing and reading(not on a kindle, on a physical book) have something special about them that's different from any website I've visited, you know?

  2. You continue to be so incredibly awesome. Thank you.

  3. Love this! It's so completely, incredibly true!
