I loved biographies when I was in grade school and learning about people like Helen Keller and Harriett Beecher. There were so many amazing people in the world that I wanted to get to know.
In high school I was 'forced' to read LORD OF THE FLIES. I didn't love those books but they stuck with me. LOTF haunted me and I wondered how I would act in their place.
But the book that has stayed with me for years-the one I love--is Jane Eyre. Jane resonated with me. She had an inner strength that helped her stay strong and true to herself.
Each of the above examples are totally unique and different from each other. They go from national heroines to brutal human behavior to an orphaned girl who dreams of a love.
And all of the above examples are writers who are "dealers of words". Which, my writerly friends, is you. You are the only person who knows how to deal out the words in your heart and mind. No one has been through the same experiences as you. There are readers who need your story.
Please write sit down today and write.
The world is waiting.
