I can remember wanting to write a book since at least 8 years old. I was dictating things before that. For some reason, and I don’t even remember what sparked it, writing was important. Writing a book was an accomplishment.
I still believe that. Over thirty some books later, I still get excited at the possibilities of completing a book. I also get excited about the possibility of encouraging other writers to write. There is the story of how C.S. Lewis inspired to J. R. R. Tolkien to complete The Lord Of The Rings.
Writing isn’t about the writer being important, it’s about the importance of learning, sharing, and listening. The interchange, and exchange of ideas. My friends have always inspired me to write, and I wanted to give back to that. It’s the reason I wrote The Writer Encourager.
Next month, for those who don’t know, is NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. A lot of people want to record their thoughts this year. Maybe you do, but you don’t know where to begin. You don’t need a critic, you probably already have the tools you need, but perhaps you need a friend. Someone to encourage you along the way. I’d like to be that friend.
I’ll be sharing some things next month to help on my site. Also, Amazon has my book, The Writer Encourager available now. Whether you want to get a jump start, or you’re gearing up for November 1, I hope you’ll let me help you with your writing journey. Our site is about adding value, through words and pictures, it’s about what you put down on paper, and not just what PruittWrites.
