We've all heard the saying, "You are what you eat." Right?
Well, I've also heard it said, "You are what you write."
At first, I thought, "Oh no. Do I really want to be a serial killer or something?" After careful thought and consideration, I have come to appreciate this saying. I have had a little moment of reflection, and asked myself, "Self, what are you really trying to say with this book?"
I didn't think I was trying to say anything. I created a story that meant something to me for sure, but I wasn't writing it to send a message to anyone. Yet, my story does say something about me. It says I went to law school because I wanted to make a difference, but often times feel I can't even make a dent. It says I believe in our country, our Constitution, our political system, but feel disgusted by its failures. It says despite the darkness we find all around us, I still hope for a better future.
So there's my little self analyzation. What does your book say about you?
