As November novel writing month approaches, I think about sources of inspiration to get me started and to keep me going.
Carol Christ (1980) wrote:
“Women’s stories have not been told. And without stories there is no articulation of experience. Without stories a woman is lost when she comes to make the important decisions of her life. She does not learn to value her struggles, to celebrate her strengths, to comprehend her pain. Without stories she cannot understand her self…she is closed in silence.”
Start writing. Tell your stories.
