The need to write, the need to create, the need to express.
These urgent wants kicked in very early in life for me, and I am hard-wired for it. I cannot remember a time when creativity wasn't a part of my daily requirements, as necessary as air and water.
However these desires do not assure that everything I create will be solid gold, top-of-the-charts awesome. That's never stopped me. I am typically very critical of everything I write, and it's rare that I sit back and stare at my screen impressed with myself. And that's a good thing, because it puts me in the position to constantly push myself, and I know that one day all the gears will click, and something truly amazing will occur.
This quote was floating around my social media channels the other day, and it spoke to me. I hope it speaks to you as well. Keep writing, drawing, making music. Don't ever stop.
