Sometimes the difficulties of being a writer can be discouraging. When a writer remembers what brought them to choose writing as a way of life—as their art form—it can be a great source of inspiration. All of the good feelings from that moment fill their heart and mind as they remember that moment of success or rush of inspiration. Such an experience makes the rejections and episodes with writer’s block seem like such a small thing in comparison to the wave of knowing where you belong.
Write a piece about when you first fell in love with writing. You select the form, a poem, creative non-fiction, a memoir, etc. This exercise should be food for your creative spirit—feed it well with the recollection of how your muse called you to embark on the road of artistry.
