Can I be honest?
I just feel like, as writers, we need to promote each other’s work— validate and encourage one another, comment every once and while, reblog and share and just let each other know their words aren’t wasted space. That their words matter and we give a damn and we want them to keep writing, because writing is fucking hard. And often terrifying. I mean, sometimes it feels like standing on a stage facing hundreds (maybe thousands), in the middle of a spotlight, being asked to strip naked while everyone just stares. It takes hours sometimes to build up the courage to post that single sentence, paragraph, or page. So if you’re a writer reading this, or know a writer, or want to be a writer, don’t just pass up a post that makes you stop and stare. Do that writer a favor— show them some love and support.
