Barbara Kingsolver Quote

  • October 14, 2014

Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.

    This is really powerful and encouraging. I’ve always been doubtful about expressing myself, so this is a great reminder.

    Don’t figure out what people want you to say but what you want to write. This is definitely true and this should be what everyone should focus on.

    Writing is about expressing what you feel. I don’t care what other people would say about it.
