Why Write?

Articles that are personal, that tell your story in your voice.

There are many reasons to write. One of the compelling reason is that others write about us and why not us writing about ourselves. The goal isn't to write a history or about one's biography but simply is that writing and reading can be incredible—and writing is something you can do.

Writing everyday makes us better, more thoughtful readers. We bring the insights and appreciation of a writer to what we read. Everything you write has an audience. Even when you write your life story, you go back to read, listening to what you wrote. You question. You consider. You critique you choices.

Have you wondered how the story made public or got on the internet? The answer to that is simple! People wrote it.

From The Expert

Classism: The most efficient way to feel superior is to show others how much money you have accumulated, how large a house you own how fancy a car you drive. Somehow, money doesn't guarantee class. Some of the classiest people I know have very little money. Some of the richest people I know have very little class. Remember: Class that separate us not race.

Racism: Racist language is an invention of people who want to feel superior. However, racism is categorized as being prejudices related to national or regional origin, religion, occupation, social status or some other distinction.

Ageism: The language of ageism will make itself equal in the end. Young people grow old and learn what it's like to be put out to pasture. Older people remember what it was like to be young and foolish.

Ableism: Show me the perfect body and I'll show you a statue or a painting, not a real life human body. All of us humans have defects here and there - warts and moles and bones that healed wrong, muscles that don't work, hair that falls out, chins that droop, and tummies that are the wrong size. Be merciful!

Sexism: Sexist words indicate the illusion that men are the norm and women are the also-rans. Sexist words reflect attitudes that women are things rather than people. Sexist words are often stereotypes held over from prehistoric days. Sexist words demean women and can lead to violence against women.

NOTICE: Make sure you include your name, contact phone number and, if possible, an electronic photo of yourself. We'll be in touch soon afterwards, initially by e-mail. Keep On Writing!
