Who are you? A writer, or a story-teller or maybe a weaver of tales?
You know that there is a difference! One can be all and the other, either of them
I am a writer. I am aspiring to be a poet, but of an ordinary kind. Being a writer is not all that difficult.
The definition of a writer is: ( according to dictionary)
A person who has written something or who writes in a particular way.
A person who writes books, stories, or articles as a job or occupation.
As I said I am a writer as I write blog posts. I can sometimes write a few lines of poetry. But the amazing thing is that this puts me in the company of all the great Writers, like Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Jane Austin, William Blake, Milton, Brönte sisters and the list goes on and on.
But do I deserve to be in such distinguished company? Well of course not!
They were great writer, but not only writers. They were storytellers. The most read books of our history were written by these greats. They wove tales of wonder, of heroism and of adventure.
All the people here in this blogging world are writers. Some are mere blog writers like me, some are writing full fledged novels and have published their books too. Some are wonderful poets, published and still to be published outside of blogging world.
But the wonderful thing about blogging is that we all write! At the time when writing and reading are becoming an unusual pastime. We express our feelings and hopes, our dreams and desires, our fears and phobias.
The expression of our thoughts in form of our words grants us a wonderful opportunity to share it with the world, to say it no matter if nobody is listening. The urge to have our say is a part of our instinct. We want to say what we think and hope that maybe it will make difference to someone. We want to inspire people, to evoke their deeper feelings and to make them laugh.
So no matter, who we are, writers, authors, story tellers or bloggers, our words matter. If to no one else, but surely to us, the creator of these words.
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
