Writing from the Heart

The easiest way to write from the heart is when you’re having a day or period of time when you are full of emotion.
Also writing from the heart requires you to write about something you’re passionate about.
Your heart can’t speak its truth if you only want to be and appear strong and look good and shiny.
The reason is because so much of the world is based on hype and things that are not real. When you are vulnerable, you naturally write from the heart.
Being vulnerable in writing and in life is not very common. People listen when you’re vulnerable, and you speak what you believe to be the truth. Vulnerability can create immense power, and it’s that power that you can use to change your world.

“Don’t write what you know—what you know may bore you, and thus bore your readers. Write about what interests you—and interests you deeply—and your readers will catch fire at your words.”
