Writing from the heart

My Post - 2019-02-24T203354.244.jpgHey everyone,

I wanted to share with you how I like to write. From the heart.

I was greatly influenced as a child brevity is the best way to write. As an adult, writing academic and business documents, I learned not only is brevity key but supporting research lends clout and credibility to writing.

I write from the heart, always putting my audience, or my reader, at the forefront of my mind. What is my message? How can I clearly convey my message to my reader?

I am almost finished listening to Stephen King’s On Writing, and although it is about 20 years old, I find the wisdom he shares pertinent and relevant today.

Storytelling is ancient. We are the stories we tell ourselves. I reach my goal if I can paint a picture in my reader’s mind of what I see. If I do not, then I have failed.

Writing creates an illusion of reality where there was once nothing.

Keep writing my friends!
