Thank you for stopping by, and Welcome! I'll be changing things up a bit, and maybe the format, so tell me what you like.
When I started back in '07, I had no idea what I was doing. All I knew was that I had to get some stuff out, because nobody else was saying it.
Maybe you too want to get out what's rattling around in that brain of yours. Maybe you want to have your say. You might see things nobody else is saying. Or maybe you want to say it better. Writing is a journey, every time you put words to the page.
Writers struggle out loud. We air out, what's churning around inside of us. We set our words free, to see how they fly. Usually they fall apart and crash into the earth. But not always.
We spill out our deepest thoughts, especially if we can turn a good yarn.
We work through and formulate our thoughts, dreams and visions. It's never pretty, but it's real. "Our mess is our message." ~John Maxwell
We embrace living close to the edge, so we might help somebody else. Writing is like doing battle with words.
In fact, when it comes down to it, all writing is a spiritual practice. Most of us never even see it, but it's the place we all write from. Whether it's books or poems or songs or hymns or stories or copy, we 'bleed all over the page.'
Your words are vessels that hold your spirit, or lack of it, your genius or your empty words. So choose them carefully, and make every word count. They're filled with you.
Let's begin together. Let's begin intentionally, to learn the art of writing as a spiritual practice.
Be forewarned, it's a bloody messy business. And there's no telling where it will take you. It's a dangerous thing to take a pen in hand. But with it, you have a real shot at changing the world.
So wield your heart and soul and strength and sinew. You've got a story to tell.
Again, Thank You for stopping by. My hope is that you will start writing as a spiritual practice if you already haven't. Even if no one ever reads it, it makes a difference. Keep coming back.
