And So It Begins…

Classes started this past Monday. I’m still nervous but I know that these two online classes are going to help me focus because it’s going to teach me discipline. (grrr, ADHD for fighting me on this. I hate you. )

I’ve already turned in a couple of assignments!

I know that both these classes, Creative Writing and English Literature are going to help hone my skills as a writer. Is it going to be hard? Well sure! Nothing in this life comes easy. However, it’s in those moments that one realizes that it’s worth it in the end.

Have I thought about withdrawing from these classes? Yes. Why? Because I have a nagging voice (Satan) whispering in my ear telling me I’m not good enough. That I don’t have what it takes.

Well, the joke is on you, Satan. I am going to fight you on this. These two classes, however hard they may become, are going to shape my career as a writer.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us this:

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

This is the path the Lord has guided me onto. This is the path I am following. I have a passion for writing and this is my talent. It’s the only thing I feel like I’m fairly good at.

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

Why do I write?
Because it’s therapeutic.
It helps me release these feelings I have that I can’t say out loud.
Writing helps me
Writing shapes who I am and who I want to be.

“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”

Anne Frank
