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

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

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
