Great writing comes from emotion and the wisdom of experience, especially by having either participated in a wonderfully divine moment or lamenting the loss of no longer having that person, place or thing available to you.
We long for what we can not have, what has slipped through out fingers, and what we once had available to us and now miss. We regret missed opportunities and not appreciating what we once had available and offered to us daily. These observations and musings make for great writing fodder.
Our greatest moments serve as inspiration and renew hope that something exciting lies in wait for each of us just around the corner! Think back to the exciting times in your life, out dancing with friends, attending parties, weddings and family gatherings, the most unique place you’ve ever traveled and the funniest experiences you’ve shared with co-workers, bosses and friends. Perhaps you have fond memories of a beautiful tropical location you visited, or the experience of meeting a gorgeous stranger in the most unusual place. These stories remind us all of the magic in life.
Every moment is a story in the making, as we learn from the good and the bad. As a writer, when we share a story, we can help the reader gain perspective on an experience to understand what was going on in that situation, not just from one person’s view, but from the variety of characters involved. This provides clarity and the ability for the reader to understand on a deeper level what the experience means to people at different points in their lives according to their personality and how they perceive an experience based on their personal biases, cultural beliefs and even age.
To begin, Enjoy Life, Carpe Diem! Go out and seek adventure, which will stir your creative juices and awaken your inner muse to better writing.
