I totally get where you’re coming from and a small part of me gets it but the writer in me refuses to agree.
All I write, are the things inside of me asking me not to be revealed. The stories that don’t want to be told, the shameful ones, the painful ones, the admissions I’d be better off keeping to myself. Here’s the thing, I don’t do it for money. So I’m not selling anything, definitely not my soul. I’ve sold my soul so I know what it feels like and writing the stories you don’t want to isn’t that. It’s a practice of courage and liberation. That being said, I don’t write about other people’s tough stories or worst pain,I’d have no right or reason. But my own, open game.
Try it before you knock it.
