Every time I write, I am a peacemaker.
I make peace with my fears, my doubts, my anxieties and all I can do is celebrate that in writing.
I know making peace is the only way to be.
I have battled fear, I have played with it and I have given up. The only thing that works is peace. The only thing that works is admitting you love your work so much, that you surrender.
And making peace with your fears is even better when you realise you can use your ally in your writing. You can write your character’s fears and doubts and dreams with such clarity, because you write it together.
I know that fear will always sneak back in on me, and I don’t care. I know what I have to do. I stop fighting, and I make peace, one step at a time.
