Be Who You Are

Your words may
not be the most
eloquent,
emotional,
humorous,
thought-provoking,
informative,
or
inspirational
but that does not mean
you should give up writing
The fact that you’re
making an attempt
to share yourself
despite being judged
makes you a devoted
artist to your craft
with the heart and spirit
of a true writer
So lift someone up
with your words
and
make it stand the test of time

Take Time To Reflect

Once in awhile,
as a writer,
take the time
to stop and take a moment
to know that
you connected with someone,
somewhere in this world,
with your words
chosen from
your heart,
mind,
and soul
Never give up
your passion for writing
and
share your story
with the world
because
your voice
needs to be told

The Journey

Writing is a journey
It takes your mind
through the stratosphere
and completely changes
your perspective
It carries your
inner voice
from within and propels
it out into the world
for all to see
This path becomes
your way of life
and helps you to become
an artist
who creates magic
with words
and sets your stories
on a course
destined to open
the hearts and minds,
to strengthen and inspire
everyone and anyone
willing to invite you
into their lives
So take the first step,
do what you love
and go on
the journey
of a lifetime.

In The End, It’s All Good

I’m always in awe every time I peruse the other blog sites; their writings are eloquent, articulate, beautiful, concise, humorous, lyrical and picturesque.  Even after all these years of writing, I sometimes feel like I’m not in their league.

Because of that, I tend to have a qualm with my writing style; doubts creep in.  Am I too wordy?  Is my writing clear enough to get the message across?  Am I too boring?  Not funny enough?  What are the other readers thinking?

Every time I sit at my computer to write, I always wonder if the words that I choose truly evoke what I’m feeling deep inside.  Because of that, my writing process is hampered.  A3

Often times I get stuck trying to figure out how to convey my thoughts into words.  Do I use simple words?  Are there more elegant ones that would make it sound more thought provoking?  If I use those words will I sound too flowery?  Or will it make me sound like an idiot for not using it the correct way?  A6

The plethora of words wage war and usually the victor emerges after a few minutes.  But even then, I still question as to how I’ll form sentences with it. A2

Writing shouldn’t be this difficult right?  It should be free flowing without any debilitating thoughts.  Or at least that’s how I envision it.  Why do I always go through this?!

I do admit that I’m getting better at not having these hang-ups but the thoughts are there in my somnolent memory waiting to bust out unexpectedly.

But I’ve concluded that this is what I love to do.  So I just plow ahead, write it down and not fret!  The way I write is who I am and I should accept it.  Other writers don’t care.  We all do this because this is our passion.  We only care if we are inspired, entertained or informed about one another’s writings.

So in the end, it’s all good.
