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

All That You Are

When it comes to your writing,
never play it safe
Push your boundaries
Put pressure on yourself
to be great
Become more creative,
more humorous,
more entertaining,
more informative
Placing expectations on yourself
helps you to
rise to the challenge
and
knock down all obstacles
So live everyday
Live in the moment
If you do,
you will not falter
So dare to be great
cause the time is now
for you to share your words
and
all that you are

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

Power At Your Fingertips

Lay down the foundation
for positivity
by using words that promote
thought,
creativity,
joy,
love,
and humor
Make your heart become
the voice
of a writer
who wants to make a difference,
who wants to evoke emotion,
who wants to bring change,

who wants to entertain,
who wants to inspire
If you can do that
in your own unique way,
you have truly mastered
the craft of writing.

Every Word Counts

If you want to make people smile,
make every word count
If you want to make people laugh,
make every word count
If you want to entertain people,
make every word count
If you want to inspire others,
make every word count
If you want to make a difference in people’s lives,
make every word count
So be creative,
be daring,
set your soul free
Be the kind of writer
you dreamed of
and
make every word count

To Share Your Words

When you are writing
and the words
flow through you
You’re on a higher plane,
you have clarity of purpose
You strive
to get your message
out into the world
To touch the untapped minds
of those
who are ready to see
the true beauty
of the written word
and make known
the meaning,
the elegance,
the exquisite
craft of prose


Quiet Time

There are times when
your mind goes blank
and
there are no words
Have no fear,
the mind just
needs a chance
to rest and recharge
So let the process
run its course
and
it will be back to normal
Until then
do not worry
the mind is not empty,
it’s just quiet

Be Carefree

Every path we take,
every mistake we encounter,
every success we experience,
adds richness
to our inner voice
So go out into the world,

let go of yourself
and
be vibrant,
feel invincible,
spread love,
it will give meaning
to our words,
it will inspire,
it will connect
,
most of all,
it will make us become
a better writer
