Let me be as direct as possible. Your words matter.
Now, more than ever, the world is in desperate need of YOU...an uplifting, inspirational, destined-to-eventually-triumph hero to bet on against all odds. You have a spectacular universe living inside your brain, waiting patiently to be released. Your consciousness has more power than you can even fathom. You can change the world solely with your words.
Today is the first of many where you will shape a collection of 26 letters into a message that transforms someone else's life. Writing is perhaps the most underrated moral obligation. It is true, that the words flowing from your pen release some of the pressure inside of you...but have you ever stopped to ask yourself why that is? Why do you possess such an unrelenting need to translate your thoughts onto paper...to make them real, visible, tangible?
The answer is simple. Your words are of infinite merit and by nature want to be free. The stories you create have a great destiny before them...to reach out across the vast emptiness between us and transform another soul's life. You are a creator and your words are your legacy.
It's easy to get wrapped up in human negativity and allow self-doubt to sabotage the whispers of your spirit. Such is to be human. But I want you to know that you are stronger than you often feel and that the characters tumbling through your imagination can make THE difference to a young reader.
I know this because I was that reader, and I'm bent on becoming that writer. I have witnessed the miracle of written communication through two distinct, unique perspectives, and I will always advocate for the incredible unity that can only be found between an author and their captivated audience.
An author's call is simple, straightforward, but the most challenging task you'll ever face:
Write for yourself and write for others. Write to prove that none of us is ever truly alone.
