What is April A to Z?

Every April, bloggers from all over the world participate in the April A to Z blog challenge, and you can too. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a great way to meet other bloggers.

To play along, all you do is make a blog post for each letter of the alphabet during April, then visit as many other bloggers as you can. For the 4th year in a row, the StoryDam’s theme is writing and inspiration from our Story Dam community. We hope you enjoy them!

Y is for You are Allowed To…

You are allowed to scream, You are allowed to cry, But do not give up!

The creative process is heaven & hell – write (right) inside You.
 The fleeting moments of inspiration – where the story just lights up in front of Your eyes & then days and days of doubt, unnatural silence of the creative soul – bordering on *gasp* writers’ block.

For such days – here is your PERMISSION! You can vent & crib & journal & blog your feelings – You are even allowed to scream & cry – but, just hang in there, and do not give up! 
Believe in Yourself!

What keeps You going? What permissions have you given yourself in the creative life? 
I’d love to read about what inspires You – Do share in the comments below!
