The Real Guts

Truth. Integrity. Sacrifice.

From the Sword of Shannara to the hero behind the scoundrel we see in Han Solo, these traits are oft seen in speculative fiction.

But it's not something that holds much value in the world we walk. There are many who claim to know what this elusive trait looks like. Some few of them actually do. But there's one thing they often lack:

Guts on the Page. The willingness to not only face external truths, but those things we hide from ourselves. To let others see those dark things we keep deep inside. To surrender it all in order to make room for something better.

The ability to give up the things that don't matter to find that which does. And the willingness to let that which was be a source of healing for others.

The process isn't easy. It calls for support and courage from beyond ourselves.

To that end, I've decided to live a #GutsonthePage life. I'll be joining with other creatives in order to find my beautiful brokenness - and help others find theirs. If you're interested in stepping forward with me, let your voice be heard.

EDIT: Feel free to blog about your truth: the things you've been through that have made you who you are. And please add the #GutsonthePage tag.


  1. How do we join you? Is there a club or something?

  2. Lelia: If you'd like to join, just blog about your experiences. Then add the #GutsonthePage tag. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. #GutsonthePage Josh, beautifully written! I will add this when I can on my blog where I interview others. TLC Nielsen
