I love you. Yes, you writers, you! I love you! I love the published authors and the indie authors. I love the authors who are waiting to publish. I love the writers who haven’t finished their books. I love the writers who aspire to write a book but haven’t done it yet. I love the poets who encapsulate the world in a few lines. I love the bloggers who capture their life one post at a time.
I do. I love you. When you write well, your stories expand my world. When you write badly, your mistakes are like my own. They caution me to be diligent and never stop striving to express myself better. When you burst your story out into the world under your own power, you are valiant. When you patiently wait, submitting your work and shaking off rejection, you are powerful. When you wrestle with your words and battle them for days, weeks, months, years, you are wise.
Thank you for your stories and for bearing your hearts to the world!
Happy Valentines Day!
