Affirmations for Writers Who Don’t Like Affirmations

I love composing affirmations for writers. In fact, you can get affirmations from me sent to you via text every Monday morning by texting the word AFFIRM to 205-892-9501.

A dear friend of mine once told me she hated affirmations, and she said reciting them felt like she was lying to herself.

I understood exactly what she meant.

Each y’all a plot

Of rich red earth 

My drawl the honeysuckle

And the spice from the peppers of Granny’s backyard

My language is my land

And on it stands 

The house we built 

This room where I call your name

And write to remember my own
