Writing Is…

Writing is…
a place where you can be you
and do your thing
it’s a place that makes you feel safe
and comfortable
a place where you can invite your family, friends
and even strangers to come join you
a place where your work is considered magical
because you’re able to create
something fantastical from nothing
So make time to take time,
to be in that happy place
where you write
to your heart’s content

The Versatility Factor

Versatility is paramount to being a writer
If you strengthen this ability,
through your own choice of words,
you’ll be able to convey your thoughts
to like minds,
to the rigid thinkers,
to the uninformed,
to the sages and to the young
Having the skill to write anything
for anyone is truly a magical feat
So be open to dabbling in the unknown
once in awhile
and add versatility
to your writing repertoire

What Keeps Me Going

When life’s obstacles
put my back against the wall,
what keeps me going…
my family
When challenges arise
and I have nowhere to turn,
what keeps me going…
my friends,
When darkness overcomes me
and there’s no hope in sight,
what keeps me going…
my faith
When the road is long and hard
and I feel like quitting,
what keeps me going…
my confidence
Living every day
is another opportunity
for me
to go for everything
I want and dream of
So never give up
When life brings you down
ask yourself,
“What keeps you going?”

Our Prose

Our stories, our poetry,
our quotes, our haikus,
our sonnets, our songs,
our memoirs, our blogs…

the prose we choose
are the crumbs
we as writers
sprinkle all over the world
for hungry minds
to help gather
inspiration
and
perspectives
into the betterment
of their well-being
