I haven’t been writing in a while so I turned to a solid form of inspiration I have come to know as Ten Quote Tuesday on A Writer’s Path. I found this:
“Writing means not just staring ugliness in the face but finding a way to embrace it.” -Veronica Roth
It reminded me of a piece I had written a while ago so I’m gonna re-share.
Delving into the depths of emotion is not something I’m comfortable with. If I watch a movie and it makes me cry, I probably won’t watch it again. If a book doesn’t end the way I want it to, same deal.
Bittersweet is something I appreciate but don’t want to experience I guess. I want the happy ending or at least a promise of hope. This piece is rough for sure but I wrote it and it felt weird and freeing at the same time.:
Like the Boogeyman in the night, Honesty has come to wake me from the wonderful dream I currently reside in. With it’s claws of truth swiping at my closed lids I fight back with my imaginary sword of Delusion.
The battle is on.
