Moving Forward With Writing
Two rejections of my novel, and I’m moving forward. I know my novel is worth publishing. I’ve always known the power of writing. In recent years, as well as this year, I’ve realized that I’ve grown as a writer because I’ve realized how much writing can make an impact.
It can empower. It gives voice to what we believe matters, and what is right. It gives us a chance to express how we feel and what we struggle. We can demand change for the better. We have the power make our words make a difference. It’s up to us.
Everything we do, we have a chance to change from the way we were before. That’s what writing is also powerful. We have the chance to look at our words each time and see what we can do to make it stronger. We can realize our faults and move with understanding.
I’ve realized that even though I enjoy stories that explore a new world. I rather have stories that bring a message that impacts. It’s something that connects. We can’t make that happen if we don’t keep moving forward to tell stories, and take risks towards sharing our writing.
I know I’m privileged. I have so many opportunities, especially for my writing. I am willing to wait. I’m thankful to know people that are willing to help me improve, including my novel. When I do get published, I want to be able to amplify others, but I know I can do that today. There are many voices that aren’t given a chance to be heard.
How do we move forward? We have to plan and make steps forward. We have to support others when we can. Be thankful for every victory. Even setbacks will teach us to grow. Do what you can to focus on your goals that will lead towards success. We all have we need within.
