Considering these things, I can’t help but tell my fellow writers to write fearlessly. Our stories were never meant to speak to everyone. There are those who will read and who will embrace what we write and there are those who will read and hate us for what we write.
But write what you have to write. Write being true to what’s in your
heart. Play on the page. Dance on the page. Imagine possible futures on
the page. Your stories are important, not just to you. They are
important to me. They are important to the generation that is yet to
come. --Rochita Loenen-Ruiz, Movements: A Poetics of Struggle (Part 2)
