Hear me out. Nobody likes bad luck. And I’m sure most of us would rather not be published than have something difficult happen in our lives.
But not only do I believe writing is one way (and a healthy one I might add) to express yourself in the midst of hardship, I also believe that if you are a writer, this is a good opportunity for you to transform your bad luck into good luck by being able to write about your experience.
Think Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love or Laura Munson and her memoir This Is Not The Story You Think It Is.
If you’ve got a story to tell about a difficult experience or how the worst day of your life became the best day, then that could be your next blog, article or memoir.
That’s why all new experiences are so enticing for writers. They can always lead, good or bad, to a new writing opportunity.
Good luck writers!
