Hope you are staying safe out there. You ask a really good question. There are many many answers to this, but I would say what has helped me is to read. Read a lot. Everything. Also--write as much as you can when you can. Don't make it fancy. Just give yourself a 30 minute block and write as much as you can! Does this help? (less)

“Pizza is made of magic" -Ari”
Chris Baron, All of Me

“Inside my skin
is the beach, and the sand,
the redwoods and pond water,
the feel of a kiss, wet on my lips,
a mountain climbed,
and fog forever,
boogie boards,
and sleeping mats,
stories and stories,
and real
friends.

None of it
heavy water.
Just me moving forward,
finding m own story.
-Ari”

“A clear thought like starlight,
the kind that only comes
after something tough happens."
