Inspiration from Others
“(My diary) became a friend, the paper that it was made of was ready and willing to accept anything and everything I had to say; it could handle my fear, my questions, my sadness. I discovered the beauty of writing – when one can pour oneself onto a great white emptiness and fill it with emotions and thoughts and leave them forever.” written by Zlata Filipovic and shared in Freedom Writers Diary by Erin Gruwell)
Passion for writing oozes from Zlata’s words. There are days I agree; when I can’t get words out fast enough. More often, however, my words clog up like debris in a drain. They pool up instead of flowing smoothly.
That’s when I think of my writing friend who is a wordsmith. She has the gift of finding the perfect word, making every sentence a masterpiece. I read a page from her book, set myself down and my words begin to pour out, loosening the clog, to fill my white emptiness with the better stuff. Get inspired by reading the works of others. They may just be getting inspired from reading your words and works as well.
