I’ve started the year with quotes about the importance of writing, to the individual and to our world. Keep on doing your creative work, even if it’s only 5 minutes a day. You need to do it; we need you to do it.
“We do not write because we must; we always have a choice. We write because language is the way we keep a hold on life. With words we experience our deepest understandings of what it means to be intimate. We communicate to connect, to know community.”
