When you can't find an answer, maybe you're asking the wrong question
Love this insight: "I write about everything because what matters is not the what, but the how, and I write with heart.". Really hit home for me, great piece Danny!!
Really enjoyed this deeply honest, vulnerable article, Danny. So relatable.
“What do you write about?”
I write about everything because what matters is not the what, but the how, and I write with heart.
I write about everything, as long as it has meaning to me, and I help people do the same."
“Readers can smell with their eyes, and they’ll know if what you’re telling is from the heart or if it’s just BS, and I can assure you that readers will choose a technically weak story over great BS, as long as the writer had bleed to the paper, metaphorically speaking, both the blood and the paper.” Love this!
As someone who also writes about parenting, this last paragraph was powerful
Awww, Danny, I loved this essay.
"Narrow down Danny, you have to narrow down. Aim to the center, there’s where the heart rests, there’s where the heart beats. At the core."
Keep writing with your heart. 😌
“Look at me, I’m so special!”, my eyes scream in silence.
I hate this, but I can’t help it, because they are both true.
This hit home. I can totally relate to subconsciously devaluing my own work because I didn't know how to wrap it up in a bow for people.
As a fellow heart-forward human being, thank you for writing this.
