What Writers Want
The proof of writing is in the deliberative reading.
Why Writers Write
I know I am a Writer.
I know it in my bones.
And, like a music writer,
I specialize in tones.
My careful words and phrases.
come rushing to the fore.
I write in hurried phases,
as those others jot a score.
I have the proof to show it,
those reams of published works.
Many the times "I sold it!"
Though rejected by some jerks!
The reasons to read and write:
I have opened doors you have not opened.
I can help you to open them.
You have crossed some bridges I have not crossed.
You can help me to see my way across.
Joining a group of professional writers and photographers on HubPages.com has been an enduring delight, and after 55,000+ "Views" of my published pieces, and more especially after 8.000+ "Comments" from those fellow professionals, I can state with conviction that I love HubPages.
That the supporting system for HubPages is still ironing out some kinks and wrinkles is to be expected while this relatively new group and its modest staff cope with incoming and exiting members and the ballooning technology available to better serve group members.
As a writer/photographer and not a staff member, I am generally unaware of what challenges the support staff cope with day after day. But I know that when I have had need for their assistance it has been provided quickly and professionally.
That's what writers want, that and a convenient platform for getting the words out once they have been written.
Freedom of speech would be nothing without the protections and convenience of enhanced self-expression. HubPages.com literally allows my words and writing efforts to be available to the world as we know it.
By making my words and photos available, I have been empowered to become what I am capable of becoming, and with help along the way from talented friends and associates I am so thankful.
