A wise frog once said, "Let's choose to see what we have in common." Really, I think we have more in common than than we have differences. This is true for writers, too. Every writer has a story to tell or something to teach. We are all looking for a way to express our creativity; to reach out to our mostly-unseen audience and try to make a connection. When you're an entertainer, and you're doing a show on stage, it's easy to connect with your fans. They're right there! You can immediately tell if they like what you're you're doing or not. Writers don't have that luxury. From the time we come up with a book or story idea until the finished project is available for sale, it can be as long as a year...or more. Unless your a JK Rowling, there aren't adoring fans waiting to greet you wherever you go. As writers, we just put our faith and trust in the belief that others will like what what we've done. And then we sit and wait to see if our hardwork pays off. Which brings me full-circle to today's message; isn't that what everybody does? We do our best, we put it out there, and hope that the world sees and appreciates us (and our creativity) for who we are. Each and every one of us truly has the Right Stuff..we're born with it and all we need to do is put it out there!
