I included two inspirational quotes this week because I felt strongly about both of them and the way they interact with each other is compelling to me. Writers have long had the reputation of not being stable or particularly sane. A reputation that Byron helped develop and solidify.

However both Lord Byron and Jeanette Winterson are arguing for the relief that writing brings, even if it is only temporary. Writing can allow us to say things on the page that we would never be able to say in person. It can let us say what we deeply feel and move on to a better place.
