Writing is a beautiful sojourn – and being solo in the most positive connotation. It reveals us to ourselves: sometimes in ways that are inexplicable. Our pent up emotions slowly flow in a divine rhythm, where words become a means to our most concealed emotions.

Upon watching Jon Morrow’s video, here, I have fallen in love with writing even more. My personal takeaway from this video is to write not just based on what your audience’s existing desire is, but also how you can write with your feelings and convey it in a stirringly real way. Jon has struck a chord with me, and I cried because he just so intuitively knows how to communicate with me – and touch my soul.

And so can you – and I – in one way: express your courage for who you are. When you transcribe your pain and stand up for what you truly are, your writing reflects realism, maturity, and originality.

But why courage?

Courage is a ‘raw’ emotion laced in so many trials and tribulations when we feel it every single time in the journey of our life. Each new moment of courage we get tete a tete with, we feel we are a better version of ourselves. It makes us feel stronger and more prepared to share our pain with the world in the most transparent way. And what better than putting those moments of courage into words that can move people so dearly? Writing is the most definitive means to express your feelings and give meaning to people who feel a void that is just waiting to be filled with your dose of inspiration and courage. Just like how Jon moves us, we move others – and this slowly becomes a quiet yet intense writing revolution that keeps taking new form and shape, with new words injected with deeper emotions.

Every story should have courage – that’s when your uniqueness will shine.

We all need courage in our writing so that we can uplift the world to create their version of courage – and eventually make this world a more caring, courageous and beautiful place to not just live, but thrive.

So pen your courage and write to move; move to spread; spread to share; and share to win hearts.
