My inspiration to write stems from those who mean the most to me in this world. They are my muse, my audience, my fuel that feeds the fire of my writing. Without them, there are no words, just mindless, meaningless actions without thought; my life would be as stagnant as an idle pond. I keep close to me this phrase I heard so long ago whenever I write:
"Sticks and stones may break bones, but words can break a heart."
As words can certainly break hearts, so too can they heal and so become the impetus of the very engine that keeps us going--our hearts. What we do with our ability to write defines us as writers and our passion for life should emanate from such.
In each of us, we wield the power to change the world.
