Everyone Should Be Encouraged To Create Something

Everyone should be encouraged to create something – to put something out into the world that didn’t exist before.

Everyone should be encouraged to pick up a pen, or sit down with a keyboard, and begin to write.

Everyone should be encouraged to pay attention to their surroundings, to pay attention to themselves, to write about what they notice, and share with us what they’ve learned.

We should be encouraged to do these things early. And we shouldn’t be told that creation is reserved for a special group of people.

These should be the things we’re most encouraged to do.

These aren’t things that we should quit doing once we grow up – we should be encouraged to do these things especially so when we’re adults.
