Hope is Required For Writing

Hope is Required For Writing | Scriveners' Trappings |
Writing sounds easy, but it is not. Hope is required for writing, for it is an act of faith. Famous writers struggled, and so do we. We need hope to write.

An interesting and useful examination of the importance of hope for all writers.

For those days when the words just won't come.

Kali Cordes's curator insight, February 20, 2014 5:17 PM

This article describes the necessity of hope when a writer of any level sits down to write out their thoughts. The article mentions several famous authors' descriptions of what it takes to be a writer, and how even they required some inspiration to keep at it.

I loved this  article because it describes my exact dilemma that I wrote about in my first semester portfolio. Inspiration is a hard thing to find within yourself, but it is also the most important part of writing. The hope described in the article is really the key to finding that inspiration.

Fascinating example of a very rich way to publish material. Great idea for student work as an alternative to powerpoints and prezis.
