WRITING IS LIKE A DANCE

ARTFUL WRITING

Brenda Ueland has been a rock mentor encouraging me to write for these reasons:

“Why should we all use our creative power?  Because there is nothing that makes people so generous, joyful, bold and compassionate.”

There, I find the courage to share my convictions.  She goes on to say:

“Because the best way to know the truth and beauty is to try to express it.  And what is the purpose of existence here and yonder but to discover truth and beauty and express it, i.e., share it with others?”

Carl Sandburg calls Brenda’s book, “If You Want to Write” the best guide ever written on how to write – I continue to agree.

Who has best inspired you to write?

 

WE EACH HAVE…

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

“Every house is founded by someone, but the founder of all is God.”

–Hebrews 3:4

Don’t you find this thought to be reassuring?  I do.

Each of us is given a spiritual house to build and live in and to hand on to our next generation.  What will your house be like?

“If the Lord does not build the house, in vain do its builders labor.”

–Psalm 127
