I came across this quote while reading the book “Staying Strong: 365 days a year” by Demi Lovato. It is an inspirational and motivational book with 365 chapters, so you get one quote per day everyday for a whole year. I decided to pick this quote for this week’s writers challenge because every once in a while we all need a reminder that we can do it. Just because we are “not-so-good” in writing fiction doesn’t mean we can’t be writers, No. We all have the potential in us, we only need to figure out what we’re best at and the world would be our oyster. For some, this might be non-fiction, or poetry, or comedy sketches. But there is something you have the potential to be great at.
And of course, for some people, it doesn’t come overnight. We don’t just wake up and say, you know what, my zone is short stories writing. For some of us, it takes practice and trials to figure it out. And it’s not all the time that the piece we are writing comes out exactly the way we want it to. Trust me, when I read some of my old poems I’m like, what was I thinking?! But, the important thing is to realize even if we aren’t great at a particular “something”, we have the potential of being even greater at a whole other thing as long as we don’t give up and we keep pushing. And please, do not let anyone tell you otherwise.
So, that’s it! My writer’s quote Wednesday challenge. For more inspiring quotes, head over to SilverThreading where this event is being hosted
