The future begins at the edge of your comfort zone.
Have you ever read an article or post that hit home? Caused you to rethink how you were acting? Inspired you take action or change the course on which you were headed?
Have you ever finished a novel and felt lighter and better when you finished it than when you first picked it up?
If so, you know why I write, and why your voice is needed too.
When I was eight and wrote my first poem, I wanted to tell the world, “Here’s what’s happening to me; here’s why you should care.”
Since then, I’ve published six books (four still on Amazon) and two hundred thousand articles and blog posts. I’ve written my debut novel and am half-way through my second.
Why? For you.
Because I know something happens when I write, and you read. If I do my writing job well, you consider what I’ve said and think “does that apply to me?” or “do I care and if so, what do I do?”
Here’s the truth — those who write articles, blog posts, and novels, change the way their readers see the world. Writers explain situations, instill empathy in their readers, offer invaluable advice, point out unforgettable truths and transform and rewire how their readers view situations and think about their lives.
What do I think you might want to do with this information? If you agree with me, you’ll start writing.
Why you? Because you’ve got a voice, an important one. You’re real. You care. You have insights others could use.
What are you passionate about that you want others to hear? Has reading this post made you think about writing your own? If so, you’ve proved to yourself the value of writing a post that changes the lives of those who read what you write.
If you pick up this challenge, please let me know. I’d love to read what you’ve written.
