The Art of Writing

Have you ever thought of your writing as a form of art? In all honesty, you don't have to be a poet to be an artist of words. Simply think of the manner in which you string together strands of words. This small phrases and sentences can be beautiful, strong, hopeful... Your composition can reveal bravery, vulnerability and beauty. What I love most about writing is that there is infinite possibly.

I found this quote on Pinterest, of course, and wanted to share it with you.

One of my biggest fears is rejection, and with that comes failing to be accepted. But, when you truly let go and allow your creativity to be pure, natural and unique, you open doors to so many opportunities.

Obviously most of us love writing - I mean, we choose to blog and share our life with others on a daily basis. But, I am a firm believer in acknowledging your own success and achievements. Each of us should be proud of our written art. Even though sometimes I complain of writing struggles, there are some days when I can truly reread my posts or articles [for work and school] and think they are masterpieces- and you should too!

Thank you to everyone I follow for opening your heart and mind to me. So many of you teach me things on a daily basis that I would have never thought about or learned otherwise. With gratitude, I congratulate you on your mastery of the art.



  1. One of my teachers quoted him on the first day of class, and told us to never be scared of being wrong! I think it's so important!

  2. Wow what a great quote! Rejection is something that I am afraid of but It's bound to happen.This encouraged me :) Great blog!

  3. the wonderful thing about blogging is that it doesnt have to be perfect!!! I consider myself a terrible writer because I STUNK at it in school. I loathed writing and hated that I could never get good scores but it wasn't until I started blogging that I achieved a new found confidence in myself and my writing skills :-)

  4. Great blog today! That's what it's all about girl! I hope you have a great weekend! :)

  5. Thank you for that! I was so scared to share my blog with anyone for a long time! Courage!
