This is so true, I love sitting down to write either a blog post, or a piece of writing towards my novel. Having a notebook to hand is a great idea, and it must be nice to look back over what you fell in love with even if you didn’t do anything with it! I really must sit myself down and get writing more often 🙂
I’d like to think I have a small ounce of talent in it as well.
This past year, I’ve started to see how beautiful the process of crafting sentences, of using language is. Our duty as writers is to portray reality through story accurately but beautifully. This is not easily done, and often not without sacrifice. Time, emotion, and vulnerability all contribute to my writing, which is honestly painful a lot of the time. But learning how to make a beautiful piece of writing is a continual process that helps us assess and understand our reality.
