How To Own Your Story

amandaonwriting:

'One of our biggest obstacles to overcome as writers is fear. We have enough holding us back. I love this quote by Stephen King:

“I have spent a good many years sincetoo many, I thinkbeing ashamed about what I write. I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction or poetry who has ever published a line has been accused by someone of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that’s all.”

Well said, Stephen, but it is easier said than done.

Try this exercise if you want to find out how to own your story.

North Moulton Barn. Last morning of the trip before we hopped in the car and headed home. It was tough to get out of the sleeping bag at 5 AM. We were both tired from long days, long drives, and generally just feeling pretty grungy. It’s all so clearly worth it tho when you get to experience mornings like this.  Not just for the beauty of it all, but to also experience it while the crowds are still in bed, and to grab just a tiny bit of what it might have felt like to live out here a hundred years ago when this barn was built, and imagining every single sunrise looking this way. It’s an easy thing to fantasize about in the cold morning.
"The T. A. Moulton Barn is all that remains of the homestead built by Thomas Alma Moulton and his sons between about 1912. It sits west of the road known as Mormon Row, in an area called Antelope Flats, between the towns of Kelly and Moose. Now lying within Grand Teton National Park, it is near the homestead of Andy Chambers. The property with the barn was one of the last parcels sold to the National Park Service by the Moulton family."

Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you become for it. Shake things up today! Be You…Be Free…Share.

Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.
