Lately, I have been having readers ask me why I write what I do. Why do I actually answer their emails? Why do I listen to them when I don’t know them?
My answers are simple really. So here goes…
1. I write because it is such a big part of who I am, but I like to send messages out into the world. In everything I write lies a very clear message decorated with details. I write to touch lives… To help people… Not for money or fame…
Yes, I am a hybrid author… (That means I self-publish as well as being published with an actual publishing house.)
What that means to me…. I can reach more people.
2. I answer emails because I am a compassionate person. Nobody likes to be ignored.
3. I listen because… I might be able to help them with whatever issue they are going through at the time. Listening to someone in need may very well have a bigger impact on their life that we know. Listening is a GOOD thing.
I can’t tell the times that I have received emails, social media messages, or actual written letters saying that I have helped someone in their darkest of hours. To me that is true success and whether or not I ever do what society calls, “Great things”, I have accomplished what I have set out to do in the beginning…. I have helped someone in need. That is why I have the gift of words… You are not alone… I promise that… If ANYONE needs me I AM HERE for EVERYONE.
Blessings to All!
Be someone’s shoulder… even if the are miles away…
