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

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

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

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
