To write is to look for yourself in a mirror. Sometimes the mirror starts covered in dust, paint, or sometimes it’s shattered.
To write is to build, clean, and polish that mirror. Because when you’re done, you find yourself staring back.
And while you thought the mirror needed fixing, you were wrong. It was the face in the mirror that was broken.
And you built that mirror by writing, and can now begin to understand what it means to be you, to be human, to be broken, and to fix yourself.
