I Love Writers

I love writers!

They say writers only need one tool, a seat-belt! A grimmer version explains how to write a book, "You just stare at a blank piece of paper until blood pours out of your eyes."

Thank you dear writers for:
  • The hours you spend alone
  • The courage to share your creation
  • The joy and wisdom you have given us
  • Opening our hearts and minds to new thoughts
  • Explaining things I would never understand without you
  • Helping me to make it through the night more than once -- a lot more than once
  • Making me laugh out loud
  • Allowing me to cry when I could not
  • Getting me through my childhood
  • Teaching me about compassion
  • Helping me to learn the "how to" of so many things
  • Daring to face the harshest, most snide criticism some people can dish out
  • Sharing the secrets of your very soul that your words reveal
  • Creating worlds of wonder for us to travel in and characters we remember for life
  • Filling me with hope
  • Making the would richer, finer, and more accessible to so many people
  • Letting me to dare to join your ranks!
I love you so dearly. Thank you so deeply.
