Last week I saw a movie with a friend (and as we’ll discuss, it’s a good thing I went with a friend and not a date) that managed to get my mind going round and round on some things I haven’t thought about in a while.
For me, this movie, Mary Shelley, was mostly about the way she held onto her dream and found inspiration in unlikely places until she found her own “voice,” a thing with which most writers (myself included) struggle with at some point in their writing lifetimes.
I have been struggling with writing a particular piece and finding my voice to tell it for some time now. In that regard, this movie was extremely inspirational… although I don’t think that’s how it was meant to be taken.
At least, that’s not how it was marketed.
Fair warning, if you go beyond this point, there will be spoilers!!
