The Art of Writing

The desire to write is both a blessing and a curse.

It’s a blessing because it taps some of our most creative resources and forces us to find away to express those in the symbols we call words.

It’s a curse because getting it right, or even close, can be agony. Ah, but when it works, its sheer bliss, no matter how we get there.

Writing is also a blessing because it gives us the opportunity to share our ideas with others—potentially thousands, even millions of others. Not many ever get the chance to inform, influence and entertain that many people. Of course, that’s part of the curse too, because we have to find and reach our audience.
