"Go write. I want to read it."

I've honestly never been more motivated to write.
In this case, my college essay.

For the past three days, I've been told to keep writing, in such a way that's completely shocked me. It was so simple, yet so incredibly uplifting. 

"Go write. I want to read it."
"Keep writing. I want to see it." 
"Here's what you do: go write, and show me." 

Wait, what? You seem genuinely excited. You want to read my writing?

It makes me want to write my heart out, and then write some more. 
It makes me want to carry a journal around everywhere with me, even though I already do. 
It makes me want to spend my afternoon drinking coffee and typing away until I physically cannot keep my eyes open any longer. That's precisely what I'm doing right now. 

I suppose this goes to show the impact of supporting writers, artists, musicians, actors, and anyone with creative ambitions. 

Thank you. It means the world to me.
