To each of us a different gift is given, a different task is entrusted. It is up to us to choose which path we will follow. As writers there is a hope of greatness hidden deep within us. Some follow this to the very end. Others do not and live life to its fruition but always wondering, “What if I’d chosen another path? Would I still have reached the same end?”

Doubt is ever present in our minds. Do we truly have a gift? Or did we fall into a vocation that wasn’t really ours because it was easy? Nothing can be certain. However, if we learn to trust ourselves and others around us, we will know the truth.

The muse comes to those that are deserving. That is our answer. Nothing is wasted. We are who we are. We need look no further. Writers we are and writers we will remain. No apologizes needed.
