“Write what disturbs you”

“Write what disturbs you,
what you fear,
what you have not been willing
to speak about.
Be willing
to be split open.”
-Natalie Goldberg

One of my goals this term is to follow this advice. I think that writers that ignore it can’t have much to say. The best kind of writing comes from a place deep within the writer, the things that are the hardest to say. That is why good writing connects with us.
