Read this fabulous post by Kathryn Trombly.
As a writer you are really a translator–a storyteller of life and this experience.
It doesn’t matter what you write, novels, articles, press releases, web content, grants or non-fiction pieces, everything is, and has, a story.
Through your words you help others to understand the ups and downs of life. Those moments of pure bliss and bitter heartache.
You teach others a little more about love and relationships. About finding and sometimes losing ones dreams.
You remind them that while everyone has their own unique journey through life, no one is every really alone.
But you have to live your own story.
You my friend, have to experience the peaks and valleys, the sadness and happiness, the fear and faith of everything in life.
