A lot has been written about why writers write. Writers write for many reasons and some, for any reason.
They write to express who they are and to say what they know. To teach and to inspire where no inspiration has yet taken root. To share the stories they see clearly in their imagination. To entertain themselves first, then those readers who find their works, some write to purge unhappiness or injustices for themselves and others.
There will be some writers who tell you their reasons come from deep in their souls, at the very core of who they are. Jane Austen had Lady Catherine say, “I must have my share in the conversation,” as most writers want their voices heard.
8baae-vinegar-valentine-poem-the-typewriter-myer-c1910-postcardWriters show readers characters and pictures that keep them and us ‘safe and sometimes warm’ from our only realties.
We are lucky today where stories are brought to life by writers and illustrators and visionaries in the many different ways there are to entertain us. But first, some idea is thought and it usually starts with a writer.
So it really doesn’t matter why they write, it’s just a good thing they do!

So, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Storytellers and Wordsmiths everywhere!

LIMITLESS

 

LIMITLESS, A Charity Anthology of short stories and poems.

 

 

Limitless is a collection of stories and poems that reflects our own live and times in all it stages through a wide variety of themes and issues we all have known or have heard about.

In this book you may find stories or poems you agree with and that affirm your believes, while others might be reflective and thought provoking testing your emotions with soul searching on subjects like tolerance and if you have it yourself. In some of the stories about love I saw someone I’ve loved myself.

As a short story author and reader, I love to dive into stories from a wide range of situations and subjects as well as the other authors’ styles.

There were poems and stories that had deep meaning to me such as – Hidden Letter; To You; I Love You MOM, Now And Always; and, Dragonfiles And The Great Blue Heron. This is a 5 star read if ever I’ve read one.All profits for this book go to the Amar Foundation to help those scarred by was in the middle east.  ~JD Holiday
