E is for Explore


Today's quote comes from one of my writing idols, Joss Whedon.

“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to EXPLORE all the things I'm afraid of." ~ Joss Whedon

I love this quote but it also makes me laugh a little. I've always been such a chicken that if I explore all the things I'm afraid of it's safe to say that I will never run out of topics. :D 

In all seriousness though I do relate to the quote and I'm grateful that writing has given me the outlet to do all of these things. 

I hope everyone had a good weekend and has a great week ahead.
