Monday Motivation: Writing Something You Love

If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.
-Toni Morrison

Of course, the word "book" could be substituted with "poem" or "story" or "play."

I think virtually every writer comes to writing because they love experiencing (typically by reading) what author writers have produced before them. And I also think that most writers will write at their best when they are writing something which they feel a connection with in some way.

Are you feeling stuck? Think about what you would love to read but haven't found yet and try writing that.
