Day Two: Why We Must Write

Hi πŸ™‚

Today I decided to make it easier on myself and use the official OctoPoWriMo page in order to grab some inspiration.

I haven’t done any timed writing since last NaNoWriMo (I feel like a word salad lol. This stands for National Novel Writing Month which starts November 1st). For ten minutes I wrote on the phrase: “We write because we must.”

My offering for today:

We write to:

release words in their wild, murderous state allow one to breathe

shadow, shapes and scenes grabbed from our feelers, like a butterfly and roach

draw together dreamers, just like what Kermit said.

to beat resistance and Perfection each day, even if there is nothing you consider worthwhile.

We write because we must.

Don’t forget to check my Instagram page for today’s InkTober drawing πŸ™‚

  1. Truth. I like how it does just what it says – our feelers tugged with beauty and dread.
