Writing is a struggle against silence. Carlos Fuentes
The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe. Gustave Flaubert
Everytime I post on my WordPress blogs there is a piece on the lefthand side of the page offering a quote in addition to other statistical information and the tags I have used and some extra tag suggestions.
These two quotes stood out for me this week. The first quote spoke to me because I find my blogging fills a gap left by the community education in which I used to work. My blog offers me a voice that I previously used in that work but which now has the potential to reach many more people on a global scale, rather than in my local community.
The second quote reinforces why writing blog posts helps me on a more personal and internal journey as I search for and unearth what I believe.
Is your writing a struggle against silence?
Does writing help you discover what you believe?
I’d be interested in knowing.
