Thoughts on Writing

I wanted to share two recent articles on the subject of writing. As writers, we need to be working to improve.

In the first article on Randal’s website, I discuss my love and passion for writing. Excerpt: “I am one of those people for whom writing is not optional. The urge is within me and it has its own mind, body and force of will. Holding it back would be akin to wielding a spoon against a flood. It will flow whether it has a voice or not because it is relentless and resilient.”

In the second article, I share my thoughts on why writers must dig deep within themselves to move our readers. Excerpt: “If our writing doesn’t turn us inward, we will never truly reach the personal and protected areas of our readers.”
