It may seem bleak. It may seem like no one out there is listening. That no one cares.
But, we are the writers.
We are the story tellers.
The ones to entertain the masses.
To be hopeful when hope is hard to find.
We must maintain. We must find our own path through the craziness and stay strong.
It won't be easy. So many distractions. So much unease and worry. It might seem impossible to focus and get words on paper.
Keep trying. Keep jotting down your ideas and your visions and your dreams.
Keep moving forward.
Because...people need us. People need stories to escape. To feel good. To find joy.
They need our stories, because there are no stories out there quite like ours.
Together, we have hope.
Stay safe, stay sane, and stay sassy.
Well said, Heather!
A voice of reason. Thank you, Heather!
People will still need entertainment.
Thanks for the uplifting words.
A lovely and timely post. Thank you, Heather.
Perfect words indeed. All have to keep on a writing away.
Folks are stocking up on books, at least that's what they say on FB!
Hi Heather - exactly ... we need to be sensible, help each other and keep positive. Lots of time to read and to write - sounds good to me ... cheers Hilary
Beautifully said. Felt like poetry.
I have many friends and relatives I worry about though not too much worry about myself. It is a 'no excuses' time to write.
Thank you, Heather. We all need encouragement AND can encourage others -- with phone calls, e-mails, and our stories.
So wonderful to read your article, Heather. I hope you don't mind if I share your encouraging words with my facebook followers.
Such a great post! Gone with the Wind was a hit during the depression. When times are hard, we do need our escapes.
Wise words are just what banishes fear and insecurity at this time.
Thank you Heather for such an uplifting message of hope. Let’s unite swords ... sorry pens, mightier, and protect the world and its people.
Have an inspiring April.
Beautifully said. Thanks, Heather.
Many thanks to whoever tweeted this out recently. I needed to read it again.
And I'm thinking of printing a copy to stick to my writing wall for a bit.
Thank you, again, for sharing this.
