Movie: Little Women

This is an old movie that I watched with my family last Sunday. The movie is about four sisters who grew up in a time of economic hardship, and ended with them each getting married, save for one who died of scarlet fever.

With that introduction out of the way, what I wanted to relate is that one of the sisters became a writer. While passionate about writing romantic novels, she found herself writing stories that would appeal to the public but not what she enjoyed writing about. She befriended a German professor who advised her to write what is in her heart. She did that and eventually became a successful writer. I believe blogging is the same. One should write about what is in his heart bursting forth to be heard. Otherwise blogging becomes a chore.

Little Women is a classic novel written by American writer Louisa May Alcott in 1868-9. The novel is based on the writer's own childhood experiences with her three sisters.
