Practical insights for writers from Jessica P Morrell

A warning & some cheer from Lang Leav

Written By: Jessica Morrell - Jan• 20•21

There is one thing you should know about writing. It will inevitably lead you to terrible places, as you cannot write about something if you have not lived it. Though the most important thing to bear in mind is this: you are there as a tourist and must always remain one. There was a very specific reason why you were blessed with ability to translate your sentiments into words –it is to bringĀ  a voice to suffering and torment. But do not be too indulgent with your experience of these things –despite how addictive suffering can be–how easy it is to get lost down the twisted path of self-destruction. You must emerge from adversity, scathed but victorious–to tellĀ  your story and in turn, light the way for others. ~ Lang Leav
