Hello everyone, as promised here is part 2 of the daily motivation series. Today instead of using a quote or something else that inspired me, I am using a quote of my own. It came to me while I was reflecting after my shift. Something I highly recommend and will elaborate on. The quote is also a reflection of what it means to be a writer.
Great stories are born from great pain the writer uses to mold their character and their arc. So don't let the bad times get to you. Instead, look at it as your real-life character arc. Seeing the trials you go through as developmental, rather than merely destructive. Of course, this is not easy, but understanding your own life before you dabble in creating a fictitious world can be all you need to get up and running.
Till next time.
