Next week is the start of the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), the month where all kinds of writers, published or hobbyists, strive to write 50,000 words of their stories in a single month! 🔥❤📝📚💪🏻
Yep, I’m taking part this year too. 😀
Filled with excitement for writing, today I’d like to share with you the inspiring words of a fellow blogger about celebrating writers of all kinds!
To write a good 500-600 words piece, it roughly takes 3-4 hours minimum, including the editing, selecting the right pictures, adding links, etc. Even the most basic article takes around 1 hour to write. Some days you produce a masterpiece. And some days are just the plain, sad ones.
Internet is a nasty space. People who haven’t written even 10 lines in their entire lives criticize budding writers and poets. And that’s very sad. A lot give up because of it. And this is wrong.
No matter how busy I was in these last months, I wrote at least 4 lines and posted it on the blog. And somehow I believe, that has kept me motivated.
So let’s support every writer out there, by copying and pasting this status. And also share one picture of you writing. To do something is better than to do absolutely nothing. Let’s appreciate our fellow writers & tell them that every single one of them is worth it. Also, Share it on every social media (I have shared it on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter already) and Reblog it so that it reaches every last person who is about to give-up writing! Spread this chain so that it becomes a cycle.
~From LifeAsWeHaveNeverKnownIt: If You are a Wrtier, It is a Must-Do.
I chose to quote rather than to reblog because I wanted to include another fellow blogger’s equally inspiring addendum in her reblog of the above post!
May the motivation keep circulating and drive writers to achieve a lot more in life. To all the writers out there, take a minute to celebrate yourself because writing is an incredible thing in itself.
I’m a writer and i write only to express and not to impress. I’m proud of myself for pushing the pen forward. So, no amount of criticism actually matters to me.
~From Sadaf Sidiqqi: Celebrating the Spirit of Writing
Think of all the writers who toil at their empty, white pages to bring you words. Think of the storytellers who bring you to different worlds before your bedtime. Think of all the good writers who got their stories rejected by publishers because the latter didn’t think they’d make it!
And so, in the words of Dominic Sceski, yet another fellow blogger: I. AM. A. WRITER. 🔥❤📝📚💪🏻
A Short Self-Compassionate Letter
It’s wonderful of you to spread encouraging words for writers!
