When we write we compose words to have meaning. Our compositions are our marks from the thinking within us. We are dynamic, and our ideas are manifested in abundance. We express them because we feel that they are worth telling.

Because we are unique, our personal views belong to us. It’s a part of the individual’s construction that others might find agreeable or disagreeable. When we write for readers- we are sharing who we are, and our approach depends on our focus.
We sometimes desire to be fictional, non-fictional or a mixture of both. We express our emotions or the feelings of others. We portray human instincts like: love, hate, happiness, sadness and more in our communication of the written words. When we write, we are alive in our endeavors- and we seek to be understood.
Writing is a form of speech- that is transposed on paper, wood, plastic and more. When we write, we have a purpose. When we write, we are documenting the things we find worthwhile in our lives. We write to influence; we write to file.
The Internet has given us the chance to take what we have composed to levels unimaginable before. We are now able to compete with the big boys for the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world.
The web is a gold mine for writers. It’s a place where one’s work can be instantly available for the public’s consumption. The days are gone when we had hoped and prayed that some popular newspaper or magazine would accept our writings for publication.
Writers have never been more liberated. There is an instant constituency of readers to please, and the drive to write is truly worthwhile in the face of growing demands for new materials on every topic.
We write because of reading, and we are aware that the hunger for new pieces is robust. This doesn’t mean that readers are prepared to encourage junk writes. They are hungry for knowledge and good literature. They want a good read, so we must write to satisfy, and to enlighten.
When we write, we share ourselves in so many ways. Our personalities become alive in the words we choose, and our spelling and grammar are our sidekicks in our literary pursuits.
