All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story.

No story is innocent.  To tell is to put oneself in danger.  To remain silent is to isolate yourself.

Boris Cyrulnik (born 1937) is a French physician and writer.  He has written several books about the science of psychology.  As a child, he survived the Holocaust when his family was captured.

  1. Oh Wowza–powerful words!!! I can attest to trying to write my pain into a number of novel drafts…unfinished. Great courage is required…which I’m lacking…thus I remain isolated to some extent. And I agree with Kathlyn Tsang–blogging is a bit dangerous, but some days it’s also a lifesaver, truly.

    • When a writer’s journey feels like an adventure, the energy released leads into a new and exciting realm. As for novels, I have not tried one. I have written several short stories of varying lengths.


      • 2 years ago I participated in my first NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month–November). It was a great experience, exactly like how you described the writer’s journey–an adventure, lots of energy and exciting! And I had no clue what I was going to write–but God said, “start typing, I’ll tell you the words”. Faith-stepping…and it led to a Christian mystery–unfinished, still just a first draft, but it was exhilarating, both as to writing, and spiritually! God-projects are a wonderful rush:) Blessings to you–and keep writing stories…they might evolve into a novel!!
