“No black woman writer in this culture can write “too much.” Indeed, no woman writer can write ‘too much’…No woman has ever written enough.”
I love bell hooks’ writing, and because I’m a writer, this statement of hers deeply resonates with me.
Her statement raises a question: Are you sharing your story? Are you even chronicling your story?
Do you verbally share with others the stories of your life? We all have them, you know.
Do you have a journal – or should I ask, do you write in a journal, ensuring you chronicle your story, your thoughts and feelings?
As a woman in this world, you have a story to tell; a story people need to hear.
Don’t allow your stories – the times of your life – die within you.
Write and write and write, and get those words out of your head and heart.
Get them into the world where others can read them and benefit from them, just as we are benefitting today from today’s quote – this mere sentence bell hooks wrote.
Take that all important step, and write.
Remember, what you have to say and to share can never be too much.
