As a writer it seems I am constantly at a crossroads of what to write about. I often feel that a roulette wheel with different subjects would benefit more than my own thought process. I find myself jumping from personal experiences to writing related tips and everything in between. Many of the posts I create have a motivational type of feel to them. That’s not by accident. Writers and artists in general I think have a very solitude way of living and at times we all need that extra push. I can only hope when others read certain pieces I write, they sit back and say, ‘hey someone out there gets me.’ Although our craft is shared with the world, it is most times created within ourselves, by ourselves. That doesn’t mean I feel writers and artists are lonely. In fact, I myself have countless muses. I write from my own experiences, wants, and wishes. But I also pull those experiences from friends and family and even strangers I meet. Each one of us holds a story – usually many stories which need to be told.
I am fortunate enough to have two books published of my poetry and prose which I am ever grateful to so many for giving my words a voice. I will always share my writing with those that wish to enjoy it. These days I find myself wanting to reach more than just readers. I want to connect with other writers as well; to contribute my knowledge and inspire them to follow their dreams. I have always had a need to share and help others grow and at the same time continue to enhance my own understanding of different genres or formats. I feel a true motivator and mentor should learn as much from the experience as those seeking guidance. I will contribute what I can, in hopes to make someone else’s journey a bit smoother.
I won’t ever abandon the written word; I love it. I will only be adding to my portfolio. My ideas are many and the messages I want to share have a wide range of topics. If my words are stumbled upon and become motivation or inspiration for other would be, current or aspiring writers, then I have contributed to the beauty of the craft.
I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a note or sign up for email updates and get all the news on my upcoming projects. Better yet, do both.
Thank you Jay, as someone who has recently begun writing again after a long
(30 year) drought, your page has been like a tall drink of water 🙂 I love the camaraderie and support of the other writers on our page. I look forward to learning more.
I enjoy the page as well, as Cindy said. I found your writing at a time I really needed the inspirational messages, and then I was encouraged to share some of my words through some people I met along the way. Thanks for sharing your words and helping the writers I know, and I’m sure many more 🙂
That’s wonderful. I am so humbled when I hear others started writing again because of something maybe I did. Write on! JL
Thank you Jay for getting me back into reading beautiful poetry again. By reading your stories as well as others my heart and soul are opening up again.
That’s great to hear. Happy you’re writing again. That’s just great. JL
I am so glad you share your poetry, you have brought light when I was only seeing dark. You have helped me to get through some of the healing I needed in order to trust love once again. For that I am eternally grateful.
Thank you very much Lorraine <3
