Somebody once asked me “Why do you write?”. Not the world-famous “When did you begin to write?” or “Who Inspired you?”. But this person walked up to me and asked me why I write. And they were dead serious, their eyes filled with determination. And I answered that question like the natural dreamer I am.
“I had something to say, so I opened my heart.I wanted to know how to say it so I put a pen in my hand and it all flowed out, knotted, tangled, twists of sense and reason and right.And my world, the one I see through these eyes alone was shared and scattered on paper.And I was unraveled, unwoven.” Upile Chisala.
Just thought I would put this up for all the writers who have ever doubted themselves. Don’t. Life will hand you so many difficult situations where your dreams and your ambitions are taken to task. But you musn’t worry, you musn’t turn your backs on what you believe in. What you were given freely, your talent. If you have something your heart has always hungered for then don’t be afraid to take a risk for your fulfilment . Writing came to me, I never asked for it but there it was on my lap starring at me. Abraham Lincoln once said “Whatever you are be a good one”. God gave me the gift of writing so I intend on being a good writer. Whatever it is you are be a good one.
Happy Sunday everyone!!
