“You are writing for the cosmos, girl.”
My friend of 16 years told me that. I was 23, maybe 25 at the time. She said it because I had a rough patch of writing posted for review (via another platform, I no longer write there) & a mutual friend of ours tore it to pieces.
I did not feel the same about my writing after that. I had let her degrade me so deeply that I figured I did not want to write anymore. This friend, my friend of whom I now speak, said that to me. Following it was, “Damn her. This is your gift from God.”
I am passing this on to you. I feel that you need to feel it.
It has worked for me for eons. Perhaps, it’ll work for you too.
And, thank you.
