Every Right (to Write)

If you want to write, you can.
Fear stops most people from writing, not lack of talent.
Who am I? What right have I to speak?
Who will listen to me?
You are a human being with a unique story to tell.
You have every right.

–Richard Rhodes

I came across this quote the other day and immediately printed it out so I could have it in my face every time I sit down at the computer.

I am facing some big time fears about this writing project of mine. I’m at the tail end of researching, just waiting on a book I ordered to come in. These fears haunt me. Satan is whispering in my ear, “You can’t do this, you don’t have a story to tell…..” But I DO! (EVERYONE has a story to tell)

My fears are that I won’t get my point across due to my inability to stay focused. I struggle constantly with being unable to focus. I get distracted easily too.

I haven’t been working on this book as much since I started back to work but it’s still going to happen. I’m not giving myself a timeline or anything. It’ll be finished when it’s finished!

It doesn’t help that writer’s block has appeared to settle in.

But then I read this quote and it makes me realize that there IS a writer deep down in me. I just need to nourish it and bring it to the surface. I’ve got to fight the writer’s block with all that I have and push it down, deep down. Lock it up, throw away the key, LOL.

I want to write for the Lord and bring others to Christ. I want His life evident in my life and that when people see me, they see Jesus.
