Everyone goes through feelings of inadequacy from time to time, although such annoying feelings are more frequent for some of us. The fact is feeling inadequate is commonly experienced by all people, even by those we view as accomplished, gorgeous, prestigious, wise, wealthy, and perfect.

Regardless of the type, writing is one of the most enjoyable pursuits one can ever embark on. It is, I believe, the art and skill of putting words together, creating something that has never existed. What could be more intoxicating than breathing life into words, creating meanings and notions that are invaluable to you as the writer and to your intended readers out there? Just the same way that our Creator, Allah Almighty, breathed His soul into the lifeless body of man, producing His masterpiece of creation.
