Writing Inspiration

by Mikhaeyla Kopievsky

Sometimes I find it easy to get overwhelmed by the task in front of me. Surrounded by the complex characters and sublime worlds of my favourite books, I wonder if it is delusion and hubris to think that I can claim the title author. Recently in my search for advice to new authors, I came across this great blog post that shared tips from famous authors to new and emerging writers. This one I particularly loved:

Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that – but you are the only you. ― Neil Gaiman

I love it because it says to me – you don’t have to be one of the great writers, you just have to contribute your unique voice.
