“I’ve heard writers talk about “discovering a voice,” but for me that wasn’t a problem. There were so many voices that I didn’t know where to start.”

“Nurture your minds with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes.” ~Benjamin Disraeli

Most of us have heroes, those who give something of themselves to make the world a better place. Whether it’s their time, safety, security or kindness, heroes make sacrifices to help those in need.  Who is a hero for you?  Is it a parent, family member, a friend, a stranger or a person who never fails to inspire you? Reflect and write.

“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. ” 

 

~Joseph Campbell

 

What happens when your favourite character’s story completely changes? Does their perfect life begin to unravel or do their problems magically disappear? What do these changes do to their personalities, do they merely survive or thrive?

Get creative and have fun.

logowb“At one time I thought the most important thing was talent. I think now that — the young man or the young woman must possess or teach himself, train himself, in infinite patience, which is to try and to try and to try until it comes right. He must train himself in ruthless intolerance. That is, to throw away anything that is false no matter how much he might love that page or that paragraph. The most important thing is insight, that is … curiosity to wonder, to mull, and to muse why it is that man does what he does. And if you have that, then I don’t think the talent makes much difference, whether you’ve got that or not.”

~ William Faulkner
