Do you read fantasy, and have you heard the news? March 1st, Brandon Sanderson dropped a bomb on his fanbase. You can watch his YouTube video here.
I am shocked, excited, and energized. When I grow up, I want to be just like Sanderson. He has reminded me of the importance of my stories. The muse has whispered in my ear, inspired me, and for some unknown reason, she believes I am the only person in the world who can tell these tales and write these books. I fell an obligation and a burning desire to share the world that, right now, exists only in my head with the rest of the world.
Will my writing be good enough? Will readers like my characters? The answers to those questions are in my crystal ball, and today it refuses to paint a clear picture. The future is yet unwritten, and the only way to discover what lies ahead is to sit at my desk and conjure the words.
Did you write yesterday? Are you writing today?
Keep on writing.
