Words As Weapons

Our words can be a dangerous weapon,
so we need to always
think before we speak
A fired bullet
can never be put back into a gun
So when your emotions run high,
pause and take a moment
to choose your words carefully
Remember…
your words can either
hurt or help someone
depending upon its intent

Seeking Perfection

When you write
always chase perfection
Finding the right words
to convey
your thoughts, your emotions,
your dreams, your voice
is everything
It might not be
the most eloquent or the most intellectual
but as long as
your choice of words
are guided by your heart
then in your eyes
it is simply…perfect

Honor The Process

Writing is a process
A process of deliberate practice
A practice of effort over time
and in time, results in creativity
Writing is focused on progression
rather than perfection
Writing is the practice of
finding joy in words and sharing them
Perfection is the end result
The result determines
if joy is achieved
Regardless of results,
there is no stopping point
There may be milestones to celebrate
but,
writing is a lifetime journey
Writing is ultimately a choice
If you choose this path…
honor the process

Remember Your Feelings

The most memorable things we’ve read,
stay with us
because
we compile our experiences
based on how we felt in the moment
We use that excitement, that longing or that love
to make us know
how important it was
If you want to remember
the most beautiful or most precious thing you read,
don’t try to recall the exact words
Try to recall that feeling you had
then the true essence of the words
will surface
