“We live in a culture that has, for centuries now, cultivated the idea that the skeptical person is always smarter than one who believes. You can almost be as stupid as a cabbage as long as you doubt.” ―Dallas Willard
The best part of being on my final draft is writing in difficult scenes; tackling things I don’t normally deal with in my day-to-day life. Challenging myself opens doors in both fiction and non-fiction. As someone who has always written real-life everything, without sugar-coating the good or the bad, I’m proud of myself for taking on something I didn’t think I’d ever be able to do.
“Freedom begins the moment you realize someone else has been writing your story and it’s time you took the pen from his hand and started writing it yourself.” ―Bill Moyers
