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

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

I’m Just Me

I’m just a writer. I might not be the best, most talented, creative, highly inspirational or eloquent writer in the world but I’m unique and special in my own quirky way. If I find success along the way, then that’s good. But if not, I’ll continue doing what I love to do and write to my heart’s content and relish in developing my craft.

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
