Weekly Inspiration For Writers & Creators is a user friendly, digital release. Broken into the 52 weeks of the year, this handy little companion features motivation, prompts, and most importantly the unique perspective of one who lives it. One of my favorite weeks (I skipped ahead...couldn't be helped!) is week 5. Her affirmation...
" My stories are mine and mine alone. I will nurture them by writing daily"
Now, don't feel silly. If you're a writer, stop and say this, out loud, right now. Do you feel the weight of the statement. Do you feel your pen pulsing in your hand, ready to tell your tale? Do you tell your tales with a paint brush? A camera? No matter...as Jessica states, she has provided us this wonderful tool...because we all need to be reminded to keep going.
There's just one more little tidbit from her introduction that I want to share with you. I love Jessica's poetry, her way with words, and I'm hoping this statement from her introduction will resonate with you the same it did with me...
"Above all else, remember that being a successful artist in the opinion of our pop-culture world does not make you successful in life. Going through the process with joy, gratitude and a humble character is what will ultimately pave the road to a true legacy as a person. Our accomplishments in life are far less important than the strength of our character." ~J.Kristie
Can I get an amen!
