I love what David Hare says: “The act of writing is the act of discovering what you believe.” Writing is an action that helps define us. In searching for the right words, we search for meaning inside ourselves. We listen to the voice within that speaks our truth. I think this is why Julia Cameron includes writing as a basic step in her book The Artist’s Way. To become an artist, we need to know who we are…even if all we can get is a little glimpse. Writing makes our souls visible, both to ourselves and to others.
