Our Ability As Writers…

Our ability as writers
is the gift to tell stories
that mean something to people
We use our words
to empathize,
to empower,
to educate
and to entertain
Writers are real people
with real stories and
their words have real emotions
at the center of it
Our words may be
our experience,
or it may not but
it allows somebody the opportunity
to be changed,
the opportunity to have
their minds expanded or
to get educated in a new way
This form of expression
is the most beautiful and powerful
aspect this craft is capable of

Happy New Year

As 2020 winds down, my resolution for the new year is to continue to have “HOPE” despite everything that life throws at me. Hope is a powerful motivator, a life-affirming feeling and a force to be reckon with if properly sent out into the world. Darkness cannot exist without light, so keep that spark of hope alive…have faith that everything will turn out all right. Ignite the eternal optimist within you!
