The challenge is to post at least once a week or if you’re really up to it, post once a day. I think I’ll try the post a week challenge. I like what WordPress is doing here to get us motivated. It’s a great way for writers to write something and get inspired in the process.
Do you consider yourself a writer? I would guess most bloggers consider this but what constitutes the difference between a blogger and a writer? Is it all about who gets published? Is it a self-proclamation, “hey, I’m a writer.” So what stirs bloggers to write then?
The challenge has always been about time. Finding the time to write. Many will tell you it’s about finding something to write about. I agree with that. There is the all familiar writer’s block. When that happens to me, I look for inspiration, by getting away from the pages, and finding something that will truly inspire me.
In this article, “Why Writer’s Write” simply stated, I write to inspire others as well as myself. Having something to say and sharing that knowledge to make a difference in the readers is what writer’s do.
Can we keep it brief? Sometimes a few paragraphs can state your case which makes for an excellent read. However, there are times when we need pages to get across the idea. Let’s keep the focus on the reader and we’ll have more compelling articles to share.
Sharing with others to see things differently. By looking past the dust in the light of eternity, to see the beauty that still reigns, we give hope. Inspiring our dreams and offering each other hope to do what we do.
This life is not all there is and as authors of our work we are obligated to share our knowledge, experiences, and wisdom with others. Let’s encourage each other.
