...EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS WRITABLE ABOUT
IF YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO DO IT, AND THE
IMAGINATION TO IMPROVISE.
THE WORST ENEMY TO CREATIVITY IS SELF-DOUBT.
It's not easy though, is it, to go into the mind's dark places? To have the guts to drag things out of the shadowed corners where they lurk, to expose them, to write them into the light? Or to travel into the wounds of the heart - cracked and broken places, so raw they still feel like they're bleeding - and present them to someone else using only print on paper or words on a screen?
I can't write about that, we tell ourselves. Yes, we can. We don't want discomfort or fear to hold our ideas hostage. Imagination can take that monster, can take that heartache and mold it into something that is both of us and not of us. Imagination can set our ideas - can set us - free. If we'll only let it.
