I don’t press a lot of stories on this blog, but when I read the post, Never underestimate the power of a story I had to share it.
Journaling as a means of capturing and purging emotions is nothing new. However, it is not as commonly recognized that other forms of writing can be as beneficial.
If you’ve ever had a long, pain-filled night or a day that never seemed to end, maybe a book is the answer. In her post, Louise Jensen explains how, and ends with…
“If you’re writing a story and someone asks about it, please don’t say ‘it’s only…’ because you never know when your book might change a life, or save a life. … All fiction can lift and heal. Words can illuminate the dark.”
Stop on by her post and you’ll understand why a writer should never say “it’s only.”
The month of April is half over and we’re at the midpoint of the #AtoZ Challenge. The theme I chose for the challenge is fantasy from A to Z. Settings, characters, and insights into the fantasy worlds of the Windmaster Novels, the Dragshi Chronicles, and a few words on the writing life.
Since the challenge takes Sundays off, the slot is being used to reflect on the topics covered so far. A list of posts for easier following of the challenge follows. I hope you’ll find a post or two of interest and that you’ll consider stopping by for the rest of the challenge.
