When people find out that you are serious about writing, they sometimes think that we magically weave words out of thin air. But words are not easy half (most?) the time. We battle with self-doubt. We wrestle with our confidence. We think too much. We feel too much. All those thoughts and feelings and emotions swirling inside our hearts and minds make those words run away from us. Thankfully, we don’t all experience that at the same time. I’m really grateful for that fact because when my words run dry and I’m unable to write anything, when writing feels like pulling teeth with my bare hands, the words of others are either a comfort or a source of inspiration. Sometimes both. And that’s what this post is about: The beauty of words.
Talk may be cheap, but stringing words together to form a thought that resonates deeply in the human soul is never cheap. Never ever.
Talk, in everlasting words
And dedicate them all, to me
And I will give you all my life
I’m here if you should call to me
You think that I don’t even mean

To be honest, the last time was when I was still in college, back when I was starting to get all fired up with my oh-so-new enthusiasm for coding websites. But I digress. Let’s go back to the topic at hand, shall we?
As it turns out, Edgar from Raven Apotheosis gave me one of the reasons why the start of 2015 was a good one. Thank you very much, Edgar, for nominating me! 🙂 And if you’re here reading this right now, whether you’ve been here before or wound up here by mistake, thank you as well for stopping by. Thank you for the comments (oh, how I love that part!) and for the time. I know there are other blogs out there and while it doesn’t make sense why you choose to stay here, even if only for a while, it does warm my heart. I only hope that my posts, as random and silly as they may be at times, have given you something to laugh about or learn from. (Horror stories, anyone? Taylor Swift fixation, yes?) There are other blogs out there that I have grown to love through the months, the years. I think now is a good time as any to nominate them. When I nominate you, please remember these three simple rules: Continue reading “Inspire and Catch Fire”
