The Joy of Writing


As promised, I said I would write about the joy of writing, so I will.

If you've ever experienced putting words together in a way that perfectly conveys your feelings, then you know the joy of writing.

If you've ever written something that evokes strong emotions, then you have learned how to use the written word to make a connection with another person.

If you've ever made an argument on paper that is so persuasive that it forces another to examine his or her views, then you understand the power of the written word.

If you feel compelled to write even if no one else ever sees your words, simply for the fulfillment it brings to you and you alone, then you are a writer.

Good work.

And now I compel you to write some more. You've been tagged! Kathleen Maher tagged me. She called it 7 Swans Aswimming. I added my 7 thoughts on the subject. And now it's your turn to come up with 7 Swanful thoughts. Pass it on to 7 people and send it back to me. Happy HOlidays!!
